Representatives from Brittany Ferries are meeting French union officials to try to resolve a dispute which has left 500 Plymouth-bound passengers stranded.
The Armorique ferry was to due leave Roscoff yesterday afternoon, but the sailing was cancelled because of industrial action.
The company has also had to cancel this morning's return ferry from Plymouth to Roscoff. The French workers are protesting over changes to working patterns and staff benefits, introduced by the company in a bid to cut costs.
