This is where the economic fallout from the pandemic starts to get particularly messy: port of Liverpool owner Peel Ports has prevented a P&O Ferries vessel departing on its regular crossing to Dubin, claiming it is owed around £600,000 by the ferry operator. According to this report from the BBC, P&O Ferries claimed: “We had asked for flexibility in the time required to pay, but the Liverpool port refused to respond, even though we were committing to full payment.” And one upshot may be the reopening of the Welsh port of Mostyn to Irish Sea freight traffic, after local reports that P&O has been conducting berthing trials for another vessel from its fleet.
