Hope for tourists stranded by Greek ferries

The Greek ferry strike looked set to end today. Striking seamen have promised to return to work after a weekend of chaos, which saw truckloads of perishable goods destined for remote islands rotting in the sun. The protest over demands for higher pensions and lower taxes, has also stranded at least 10,000 holidaymakers, including some Britons, in ports around the country and virtually halted seaborne traffic between the mainland and the islands.
