Port State Control - December 1

London, Dec 1 -- A press report, dated Nov 30, states: The newest cross-Channel ferry service between France and England has been suspended indefinitely just days after passenger ro/ro Norman Voyager was impounded in Portsmouth over safety concerns. Celtic Link Ferries confirmed today that its sailings on the Portsmouth to Cherbourg route have stopped. A spokeswoman said: "We regret that the Portsmouth Cherbourg route has been suspended indefinitely. We are in the process of contacting all those who have booked to give a full refund." She added that the company's Cherbourg to Rosslare service is operating as normal. When asked when the service would resume, if at all, she said she was unable to answer the question.
