Brittany Ferries has suspended all crossings due to industrial action.

A spokesman said: "All sailings are cancelled until further notice because we cannot tolerate any short notice strikes by the crew which result in intolerable inconvenience for our passengers.”

The Brittany Ferries website has the following statement.
“Following the series of strikes which has been disrupting our services, our Board has reluctantly taken the decision to tie up the fleet and to cancel all crossings with immediate effect, until further notice. The only route which will be unaffected is the Poole-Cherbourg passenger service which is operated on our behalf by Condor Ferries.”
