FERRY company Brittany Ferries has announced the introduction of a new route this winter to the port of St Malo.
The weekly overnight service leaves Plymouth every Tuesday and returns Friday.
Brittany Ferries has also confirmed the closure of its service between Poole and Cherbourg, operated by the Barfleur ferry, blaming the downturn and high fuel costs for the move.
A decision on the return of the service for the summer months of 2012 will be decided closer to the time, although the fastcat service operated by Brittany Ferries' partner, Condor Ferries, will continue to sail the route during the busy holiday period.
