Eurotunnel hits out at ferry ban

Marion Dakers
EUROTUNNEL yesterday said it will appeal the Competition Commission’s ban on its ferry services from Dover.

The Channel Tunnel operator, which launched a ferry service last summer after buying boats from collapsed firm SeaFrance, would have controlled more than half of the cross-Channel market.

Eurotunnel described the two-year ban as “incomprehensible and seriously disproportionate”.
