Condor ferries blocked between Jersey and Guernsey amid fishing row
Condor Ferries confirmed to Express.co.uk one of its boats has been blocked by French ships embroiled in a fishing row.
Elwyn Dop, Condor Ferries’ Operations Director, said: “Due to the disruption this morning in St Helier, Jersey, the departure of our freight ship, Commodore Goodwill, had to be delayed until safe passage could be arranged.

“She arrived in Jersey at 04:30, discharged her cargo as usual before leaving for Guernsey at 11:15, just over four hours behind schedule. Timings for today and tomorrow have therefore been revised to accommodate the delay.

“Disruption was minimal with no impact on the freight supply chain, which brings in 95% of the essential food, medical and other goods into the Channel Islands.

“We expect our freight and passenger vessel, Commodore Clipper, to operate to Jersey this afternoon from Portsmouth and Guernsey as normal.”
