Ferry company Sea France has officially been liquidated by a French court, ending years of speculation about its future after it went into receivership in 2010.

The company, which operated on the popular Dover-Calais route, suspended sailings in November 2011. A European Commission ruled that £176m bailout by the French government was illegal, after no buyer was found for the company. Around 130 jobs will be lost in Dover.
