Fri, 04 Dec 2015


Disruption to Steam Packet services is set to continue into the weekend.

Today's sailings have been cancelled between Douglas and Heysham until the 7:45pm sailing departing Douglas tonight.

The master will decide whether or not the Ben-my-Chree is able to travel by 5pm.

It's due to gale force - or gale eight - winds today - being increased to severe gale force nine this evening and overnight.

Gusts reaching 80 mph in some exposed spots are expected to last until Sunday morning.
