Poole move costs Condor £1m. in fuel

CONDOR FERRIES has faced £1m. in additional costs because of its unplanned move from Weymouth to Poole, it has been revealed.
The company announced earlier this week that it would return to operating regular sailings from Weymouth next summer, providing that work to repair the damaged harbour wall was complete.
Guernsey director Jan Milner, pictured, said not being able to travel to Poole in the past 12 months had affected the business in a number of ways.
‘Perhaps the most direct consequence of the move has been that we have used more fuel because the journey to Poole is further than Weymouth,’ he said.
‘This has resulted in approximately £1m. in additional costs. Our staff have also been affected and many of those that worked in Weymouth have had to be transported to Poole for the duration of the disruption.
