Ferry company P&O has resumed freight services on its Spirit of Britain ship, but passenger crossings remain suspended.

As KentLive reports the vessel left Port of Dover on Tuesday evening (26 April).

Spirit of Britain was detained by the Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) on 12 April after safety issues were found, but was cleared to sail last Friday. The ferry company sacked nearly 800 seafarers with no notice on March 17, replacing them with cheaper agency workers.

P&O Ferries has not operated between Dover and Calais since the mass sackings.

Passenger services are expected to resume early next week. At the moment, the only passenger services are being provided by Irish Ferries and DFDS.
