French port strike called off

French port strike called off

A strike at French ports which threatened to disrupt cross-channel ferry services this Easter has been called off at the last minute.

P&O Ferries had warned its passengers to expect long delays but a deal was struck at 2am following late-night talks.

Resolution of the dispute over pay will be a relief to record numbers of people expected to travel abroad for Easter weekend.

The 24-hour nationwide action by French port control officers was due to start at 7am UK time today (Thursday) and affect travel at Calais, Dunkirk, Dieppe and Cherbourg.
