Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

• MO Ferrymasters is to be prosecuted by the police and Vehicle Inspectorate for drivers' hours and tachograph offences.

Summonses have been issued against the Ipswich-based company itself following a threemonth investigation.

The latest prosecution is the second to arise from a police and VI raid in June at the company's depot at Goddard Road, when tachographs and other documents were seized (CM 27 June-3 July).

The company and 11 of its drivers appeared at Ipswich Magistrates Court this week to answer some 200 tachograph and hours offences. The case was adjourned until 19 November.

News of the company's implication will come as a shock to Ferrymasters' management. Following the June raid managing director John Bradshaw said: "We have no reason to believe that this company is involved in any offence which may or may not have been committed by a driver or drivers."

This week the company declines to make any further comment.

Ferrymasters employs 170 drivers, most of them at Dover, Ipswich and Middlesbrough.
