Business bosses claim the Brittany Ferries strike is costing Cornwall and Devon big.

All services from Plymouth to France and Spain are suspended until next Tuesday.

Devon and Cornwall Business Council says initial figures show our economy is losing 15 million pounds and that total will only continue to grow.

The latest update on Brittany Ferries website says: "following the series of strikes which has been disrupting our services to and from France and Spain, meetings with union officials have taken place, however, the latest proposal has been rejected. Therefore as no agreement has been reached services remain suspended, except the Poole-Cherbourg passenger service, which is operated on Brittany Ferries' behalf by Condor Ferries. In the meantime we have had to cancel sailings to and from France and Spain."
