Ferry passengers cost £170 each

Each passenger on a "green" commuter ferry service cost taxpayers more than £170 in subsidies, it has emerged.

A total of 3,186 passengers used the service between Brixham and Torquay in Devon from when it started in December 2014 to April last year.

During that time, the Brixham Express company received £544,000 in subsidies from Torbay Council.

The authority said the payments, which have since stopped, were in line with the firm's contract.
