Pride of Canterbury approved to return to Dover-Calais operations
A third P&O vessel on the critical ferry trade between Calais and Dover has passed ...
Troubled ferry operator P&O Ferries, whose vessel the European Causeway was only released from detention by UK Maritime Coastguard Agency (MCA) inspectors on 9 April, will be inspected again following yesterday’s power loss in the Irish Sea.
European Causeway operates from Cairnryan in Scotland to Larne in Northern Ireland and was initially detained following the sacking of P&O Ferries’ seafarers in March.
The MCA said: ““Our surveyors are carrying out a full inspection of P&O Ferries vessel European Causeway. This follows the mechanical failure while it was at sea yesterday. It is important to note that this does NOT [MCA emphasis] mean the ferry is under detention, but will be inspected before it returns to full service.”
