Island ferry link trial approved
Plans for a new ferry link between Guernsey and Alderney moved ahead after a berthing trial was given the go-ahead by officials.

Alderney's harbour master Steve Shaw approved holding a berthing trial next week after a visit to Guernsey.

He says Braye Harbour is exposed and the trial will only happen if the weather is suitable.

Guernsey firm Ship and Fly would run the service but it depends if the vessel can dock in Alderney's harbour.

It is part of a regular ferry link planned between Jersey, Guernsey and Alderney.

The Jersey-Guernsey link would belong to HD Ferries, which currently runs the newest service between Jersey and St Malo in France.
