Transport Secretary Grand Shapps has said the boss of P&O Ferries should resign after knowingly breaking the law. 

Which was informed by the chief executive that the company broke off the employment law when it sacked 800 workers without notice. 

The transport Secretary also said that the boss stayed there, breaking the rules and using the loophole to avoid getting caught. 

On Thursday, the chief executive was urged to quit by MPs. 

The company replaced its crews with cheaper agency workers last week. 
The news of breaking the law in Ferries is causing the company to Detroit down, and the UN union faces many problems. 

Union leaders are on hold to have talks with the P&O ferries today to demand the reinstatement of sacked seafarers.
