When Duty Free ruled the cross-channel routes

I've just read an interesting article on this is Kent entitled 'When duty free shopping ruled the waves on the English Channel and its fleet of ferries', recalling the halcyon days of the cross channel ferries, when takings from duty free sales could be £1m a weekend, and there were 22 ships plying the channel routes.

How it's all changed now.

Worth a read.
