The storm conditions forced Brittany Ferries to cancel a 9am sailing from Portsmouth to Cherbourg this morning.

“We are sorry to advise that due to the bad weather forecast across the Channel, this sailing has been cancelled,” the ferry firm said. “We are sorry for the disappointment and inconvenience this will cause.”

Services to Caen from Portsmouth were also cancelled yesterday and this morning due to a technical problem with a propeller on the ship Mont St Michel.
