P&O Ferries is one of the main ferry firms which travels between the UK and France. It has announced sailings to Europe have been put on hold.

Services between Dover and Calais will temporarily not go ahead.

Some reports state this is down to an operational “incident” and a big announcement is set to come today.

Posting on Twitter, the company wrote: “Regretfully, P&O Ferries services are unable to run for the next few hours. Our Port Teams will guide you and travel will be arranged via an alternative operator.

“We apologise for the inconvenience this will have on your journey plans.”

P&O added there is set to be a company announcement. 

“P&O Ferries is not going into liquidation. We have asked all ships to come alongside, in preparation for a company announcement. Until then, services from P&O will not be running and we are advising travellers of alternative arrangements,” a P&O spokesperson told Travel Weekly.

“Service suspended on P&O Ferries between Dover and Calais, between Cairnryan and Larne, between Hull and Rotterdam and between Liverpool and Dublin due to operational incident,” INRIX added.

The travel suspension is predicted to last a few hours, according to P&O.

Those who have bookings have been urged to look for alternative modes of transport.

This includes using P&O competitors or the Eurotunnel, for those heading to Europe.

The company advised headling to port to make alternate arrangements.

P&O Ferries listed a number of cancellations on it’s Twitter page.

Services running to Calais, Larne, Cairnryan and Dover are likely to be affected.

Further updates will be given by text and on social media.

It added: “Please arrive at the port as booked and we will arrange to get you away on an alternative carrier as quickly as possible.

“Once at the port please make your way to the DFDS check-in booths.”
