Agency worker refuses to board P&O Ferry over sacking of 800 staff

P&O Ferries has restarted a limited service two days after sacking 800 crew members without notice in what it says is a cost-cutting exercise.

Agency worker Mark Canet-Baldwin shared pictures with Sky News of security staff hired to escort him onto the European Highlander at Cairnryan in Scotland.

He said he was not told he would be replacing sacked workers and ultimately refused to board the ship.
