P&O Ferries sacks 800 staff on video call

P&O Ferries has suspended its sailings after making all UK seafaring employees redundant with immediate effect.

The ferry operator, which was bought by Dubai-based logistics giant DP World in 2019, cancelled sailings “for the next few days”, including on its route between Scotland and Northern Ireland, and sacked 800 of its staff on a video call shared by BBC South East.
