More sailings cancelled

The Steam Packet Company has cancelled more sailings as gale force winds continue to hit the Island.

This evening's Ben-my-Chree crossing to Heysham and the return sailing at 2.15am tomorrow have both been cancelled because of the weather conditions.

Passengers who were due to travel tonight are asked to contact the operator's reservations team on 661661 to make alternative arrangements.

However, there could be more disruption tomorrow, with severe gale force nine winds currently forecast for Thursday into Friday.
