"Ferry Crash: Don’t reach any conclusions yet, say Condor"

Condor are co-operating with the investigation
CONDOR Ferries has urged people not to ‘reach any conclusions’ about last month’s crash which claimed the life of a French father of four.
Philippe Lesaulnier (42) died shortly after the Condor Vitesse high-speed ferry collided with his whelk boat in thick fog.
French police and maritime authorities have launched an inquiry into the crash, and this week confirmed that they are investigating manslaughter and involuntary wounding charges.
In a statement released yesterday, Simon Edsall, managing director of Condor Ferries, said that the firm would continue to co-operate with investigators.
He said: ‘Condor Ferries, its officers and crew continue to co-operate fully with the investigations being carried out by the French and Jersey authorities into the collision.
‘As I am sure you will understand, until the investigations are complete neither the company nor its officers will be in a position to make any further comment, and it would be inappropriate for anyone to reach any conclusions without the benefit of the full facts.’
