Passengers stranded again by Brittany Ferries strike
Another round of strike action by French ferry workers has again left Westcountry-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, almost 500 passengers bound for Plymouth were left stranded and queuing in Roscoff when workers took industrial action just before the ferry Armorique was due to sail.

Last night, hundreds more were left at the port by a sudden second wave of strikes as 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 had to sail to Brest instead. Brittany Ferries has also had to cancel this morning's planned 7am Plymouth to Roscoff service.
A spokesman said the company "very much regretted" the inconvenience, adding: "The action results from measures being taken by the company to improve productivity and efficiency in order to ensure that we remain competitive."
