US-Cuba ferry services to restart after 50 years

Authorities in the US have approved passenger ferry services between Florida and Cuba for the first time in more than 50 years.

Services between the two countries stopped when the US imposed a trade embargo on Cuba in 1960.

The US government has now lifted the ban and a number of ferry companies say they have been given licences.
