Eurotunnel staff are search for a cat, missing en route to Poland.

Four-year-old Inka was on her way there on Sunday, when the transportation company stopped to feed the animal.

When they opened the doors, Inka escaped. The driver and Eurotunnel staf searched in vain.

Kaja, her owner, said: '"I had lived in England for nine years but came home about six months ago. Inka stayed with family but I am settled now and had arranged for her to come home.

"Unfortunately she escaped but I am still hopeful people will find her soon.

"She is a friendly cat and clings to the people. She will ask for help in a cat's way, I am sure."


Ferry closure appeal dismissed

An appeal against closure by MyFerryLink, the cross-channel ferry service operated by Eurotunnel, has been rejected by the Competition Appeal Tribunal.

It was originally ordered to stop running in a ruling on June 6th, 2013.

MyFerryLink stemmed out of SeaFrance which went into liquidation in January 2012. Three of their ships were bought by Eurotunnel who set up MyFerryLink and a battle with the existing ferry operators ensued.

Those companies claimed it gave Eurotunnel dominance in the market but Eurotunnel insists MyFerryLink is a free-standing company that's totally separate from them.

The competition commission's now agreed with the traditional ferry operators so the MyFerryLink service will have to shut down.
