J&L Transport is demanding more than £2,600 from Sally aft. the ferry operator's insurers, UK P&I Club, told the Do.. aster-based company that it did not have a valid claim. 1 wrangle follows an incident in May when one of J&L's tra Ts was damaged while disembarking at Dunkirk. The ferry door was unsecured and had begun to close, narrowly missing the cab. UK P&I Club has told the four-truck operator that the damage was not inflicted wilfully and so Sally is not liable. Sally says it cannot comment as the matter is in the hands of its insurers.

Transport manager Jill Isle says: "I'm going to hove to sue because we can't afford to lose this kind of money. Whatever the insurer says, Sally still has to exercise a duty of (ore."
