Passengers hit by ferry strike again
FRESH strike action by French ferry workers has again left Plymouth-bound passengers stranded abroad.
Brittany Ferries bosses have been in talks with disgruntled staff this week.
They are striking over company cutbacks which include changes to working hours and conditions.
Last week, nearly 500 city-bound passengers were left stranded and queuing in Roscoff when workers took industrial action just before the Armorique was due to sail.

Hundreds more were left at the port last night by a sudden second wave of strikes.
The 6.30pm Brittany Ferries service, due to arrive into Plymouth last night, was cancelled.
Meanwhile, those booked onto yesterday's 8.45pm voyage from the city to Roscoff found themselves instead sailing to Brest, around an hour's drive from their intended destination.
Brittany Ferries has also been forced to cancel this morning's planned 7am crossing from Plymouth to Roscoff.
A spokesman said the company "very much regretted" the inconvenience.
"The action results from measures being taken by the company to improve productivity and efficiency in order to ensure that we remain competitive," the spokesman added.
