The Brittany Ferries strike is over.

Bosses say services will be back to normal tomorrow afternoon as staff call off wildcat action.

It meant services between Plymouth, France and Spain were cancelled.

Martine Jourdren, Group Managing Director, comments: "Whilst this strike has caused immense disruption for our customers, for whom we are very sorry, we could not continue with a situation whereby 24 hour strikes were being called at a moment’s notice. The company has worked hard to negotiate an agreement with the unions which achieves the cost savings and productivity improvements that we were seeking, as well as removing the prospect of any further strike action."

She adds: “We know that we have to work hard to regain the confidence of many of our customers, but equally I am very gratified by the huge number of appreciative messages that we have received from those who have been impressed by our attempts to look after them. Our shore-based teams in the UK, France, Spain and Ireland have all made an outstanding effort to help both our passengers and freight customers.”
