Industrial action by port workers in France has led Brittany Ferries to delay or cancel some services over the bank holiday weekend.
British travellers are being encouraged to think ahead as general strikes over labour law reforms in France have also left fuel in short supply. Blockades by workers have disrupted six oil refineries, meaning fuel rationing may be imposed.
This is the latest on the ferries:
- 26/05/16 Cherbourg to Portsmouth 17h00 (Normandie Express) - This sailing will be delayed and will now depart Cherbourg at 18h00, arriving into Portsmouth at 20h00.
