The early morning Heysham to Douglas sailing today was cancelled, the 7.30pm Douglas to Belfast crossing has also been cancelled - all other sailings scheduled for today will depart as planned.

Tomorrow's 01.00am Belfast to Douglas Ben-my-Chree sailing has been cancelled, all affected travellers will be transferred onto the next available crossing of their choice.

Emergency repairs have been carried out on the Manannan overnight, Steam Packet has apologised for any inconvenience caused.
