Two hotels on Sark have been forced to close because the island's government has refused to welcome direct visitors from France, according to BBC News.
The Val de Creux and Petit Champ will not open next summer, resulting in the loss of 30 jobs. Owned by Sark Island Hotels, the company will continue to operate La Monerie and Dixcart Bay.
The group said that it was not cost-effective to keep all four hotels open and that without a border control, the island was suffering by forcing visitors to travel via Guernsey or Jersey, rather than direct from France.
However, Sark Tourism said: "Passenger numbers from France have remained constant during the last nine years."
