Fruit flop

PLANS to introduce a new shipping route transporting thousands of tons of fresh fruit from Spain to the U.K. have been shelved.

The proposal was to operate a three-day shipping route and cargo service between ports in Almería and Southampton, transporting 500,000 metric tons of Andalucian produce to the English docks.

The route promised to create jobs, improve trade between the two countries and help Spanish farmers export more to the U.K. and beyond.
