P&O sackings: private security firm instructed to remove staff from Larne ferry as unions urge members to stay on-board

Private security officers were sent on to a P&O ferry in Larne to remove workers protesting the sacking of more than 800 sailing staff, unions representatives have said.

Services between Larne and Cairnryan are suspended and will not resume for the “next few days”, the company said amid the turmoil that followed the shock announcement.
