Sea France the channel crossing ferry company has been made bankrupt by French courts. Rival company DFDS is trying to buy the business for a reported £5m. However the French courts have rejected this figure.
We will report more as and when we hear something.
Please bare this in mind when purchasing your cross channel ferry this winter, this company may not be afloat (sorry about the pun).
If you would like to know of your options about getting over the Channel we have some great information on our Driving to the Alps page.
