Boat firm in map mix-up.

AN Irish boating company has said sorry for producing a map which places Bristol in west Wales.

Holidaymakers were informed by Fermanagh-based Belleek Charter Cruising that Bristol had swapped places with Aberystwyth.

Spokeswoman Laura Coyle said: "I wasn't aware of it but now that I've looked at the map I can see we are way off the mark."

Plaid Cymru councillor for Aberystwyth, Hywel Evans, said: "It's hilarious - whoever made this map needs geography lessons."

A spokesman for Bristol City council said: "No disrespect to Wales but we are very proud of being in the heart of the West Country."
