A protest will be held in Portsmouth later against working practices at Condor Ferries. The RMT Union says some workers from the Ukraine are paid £2.35 an hour. The union says that amounts to 'poverty wages'. However the ferry firm says it abides by employment law.
Weymouth and Portland Borough Council has approved plans for works to repair the harbour wall at Weymouth. Earlier this year regular sailings by Condor Ferries were suspended after the quayside began to collapse.
The ferry firm has welcomed the move to approve the works.
Condor Ferries, based in Poole in Dorset is celebrating twenty-five years of sailing to the Channel Islands today. The captain of that first voyage will take part in a special crossing later.
The firm was founded in 1964 and originally carried passengers between France and the Channels Islands. Then in 1987 the company launched the first service linking the Channels Islands and the UK.
Police in Poole are asking for the public's help as they try to find a 39-year-old woman. Sarah Fenton, from Fishpond, Bristol, was last seen by her husband on Sunday as they travelled on a Condor Rapide ferry from Guernsey to Poole.
