The Condor Ferry service between Weymouth and the Channel Islands relaunches tomorrow after being out of service for nearly a year and a half.

Ferries have been diverted to Poole over the last 17 months after a harbour wall collapsed in Weymouth last Feburary. It has cost Weymouth and Portland Borough Council nearly £4.5m to rebuild.

Over 350 passengers have booked their place on the first ferry to the Channel Islands which leaves in the morning.
