More ferry cancellations

Mon, 28 Nov 2011

There are more sailings cancellations due to the weather conditions in the Irish Sea.

Winds of up to severe gale force nine are forecast for later on tonight.

The 19.45 Douglas to Heysham sailing and the return at 02.15 are cancelled.

There have been a number of cancellations over recent weeks due to strong winds and the situation hasn't been helped by one of the Ben my Chree's bow thrusters being out of action.

The thruster, which helps the boat to manoeuvre, is thought to have been damaged by floating debris.

Repair work has been delayed since September after the manufacturer said it couldn't meet the original dates.
