Eurotunnel's MyFerryLink has been given permission from the Court of Appeal to challenge the ban on it operating between Dover and Calais.

In January, the company was told it must quit the cross-Channel ferry market following a ruling by the Competition Appeal Tribunal.

It has been operating the ferry service since 2012.

A hearing is likely to take place at the Court of Appeal before 13 March, MyFerryLink said.

Eurotunnel bought three ships from SeaFrance after it went bust in 2012, with MyFerryLink operating up to 24 daily crossings on the Dover-Calais route.

In June, the Competition and Market Authority said this meant it had more than half the market when its rail link was taken into consideration.
