All cruise ships scheduled to arrive in Guernsey have now been cancelled until 11 May.

All liners due to visit the island in April were cancelled mid March, but the States have now announced further cancellations due to the uncertainty of when lockdown will be lifted.

It means seven more cruise ships will no longer land in Guernsey because of coronavirus.

The first cruise to arrive in the island was the Fridtjof Nansen, which was scheduled to dock on Friday 20 March, but was cancelled as a "precautionary measure" following advice from Guernsey’s Public Health.

The decision was then made to stop all cruise ships to the island for the whole of April.

The P&O Britannia, which was the largest vessel set to visit in April carrying more than 4,000 people, was due to arrive on 18 April.
