JOB CENTRE FOR REDUNDANT FERRY STAFF

An employment centre is being set up in Dover to help find new jobs for 500 ferry workers who are due to be made redundant at the end of February.
 
Ferry operator P&O said the job losses were a result of o­ne of its ferry services to Calais being cut after a fall in passenger numbers.

The employment and information centre will be at the Dover Discovery Centre and is due to open next week.

The centre is aiming to get as many people as possible new jobs by March.

P&O said the jobs cuts came as a result of a downturn in the tourism industry and growing competition from no-frills airlines.
