Cross-Channel ferry strike called off hours before Easter getaway
James MeikleThe strike that threatened to caused long delays for cross-Channel ferry passengers has been called off hours before the start of the big Easter getaway.
French port control officers abandoned their planned industrial action early on Thursday after successful late-night talks, allowing thousands of people to endure no more than the usual holiday travel stress.
Calais, Dieppe and Cherbourg were among ports threatened by the strike, which had prompted fears of traffic buildups on roads leading to ferry services.
