Sailings cancelled while Ben damage investigation continues

The Steam Packet Company has cancelled two sailings as a result of yesterday's crash in Douglas harbour.

Divers have been inspecting the damage to the Ben-my-Chree this morning after it hit the pier while docking yesterday evening.

As a result, the delayed 8.45am crossing to Heysham and the return journey at 2.15pm have been cancelled to allow for further investigations.

The operator has also listed the deterioration in the latest weather forecast for the cancellations.

A further update on this evening's crossings will be issued later.
