Cruise ship passengers will continue to disembark at Guernsey's Albert Pier next year, says the States.

It follows criticism about moving the disembarkation point from White Rock this summer and the effect on traffic.

The States said retaining Albert Pier would give "some certainty" to the cruise industry.

A States working party next month starts a formal consultation on the move, which was designed to make it easier for passengers.

The working party said it would give "serious consideration" to alternatives, including the use of the inter-island quay and Cambridge Steps.
