  1. We crossed over from Ouistreham a couple of weeks ago on our way to Ireland. We caught the night sailing from Ouistreham. We had a meal in a port restaurant (Le Roulis) situated where the traffic slows down for lights, sharp curves and a roundabout on the entrance to the ferry terminal. As each heavy lorry approached, it was pursued by 25+ male African youths, running in the middle of the road, forcing open the rear doors of the trailer unit and climbing aboard. They were in turn pursued by a Gendarmerie car, lights and sirens on. Some lorry drivers increased their speed, sounded their horns and attempted to outrun the youths. Several lorries continued at a fast pace with their rear doors swinging open, highly dangerous. This spectacle continued throughout our meal. Someone will get killed. Talked with a local couple who said they have moved on from Calais and are destroying Ouistreham. The Africans seem to be camping in the woods on the outside of the town. The police presence is immense, from the entry to the town to the port. There is now a large mobile scaffolding tower where security staff scan the roofs of the high vehicles. We were both quite frightened, it was unpleasant. I think we will need to book St Malo for trips home from now on. As ever, the service on the Mont St Michel was superb, despite a problem with lowering the ramp on arrival, but we were kept informed.
  2. It was in operation when I came back last Friday on the Normandie.
