Cornish Passengers Stranded on Ferry

Bank Holiday woe for Cornish passengers stranded on a Brittany ferry to Roscoff.
It is after wildcat action by staff on another of the company's fleet docked in the French port.
That meant the Amorique could not berth - so it ended up anchored two miles off the coast.
Joy Basset from Bodmin was among those on board and told Pirate FM they were well looked after: "People with animals on board are being invited down to the car deck to sort them out and they've put entertainment on for the children. Staff here are quite anxious to get home as well; they've all been taken by surprise.
"It was unexpected that's all and because it was unexpected we are all wondering what's going to happen at four o'clock, are we going to get there or not."
Bosses told Pirate FM the Amorique was due to berth at 4.30pm on Friday. They added it was an isolated incident and everything will be back on schedule by Saturday morning.
