SeaFrance Sailings Return to Normal

2 April 2010, 11:00

SeaFrance services out of the Port of Dover are getting back to normal today (Wednesday).

A five day strike by French ferry workers has ended.

The company had been unable to run services since Friday when members of the CFDT union walked out.

Operation Stack initially had to be put in place on the M20 so lorries waiting to cross the channel could queue, although it was stood down the following day.

Passengers who were booked to travel over the Easter weekend were told to turn up at the port as normal and were then transferred onto sailings with other operators.

SeaFrance have told Heart that the had to cancel 102 return sailings during the strike action and transferred 6,006 cars to other services.
