Steam Packet warns weather could disrupt crossings

The Steam Packet Company is warning there could be disruption to this evening's sailings.

The Ben-my-Chree is due to depart for Heysham at 8.30pm, returning at 2.15am, but the operator warning this crossing could be disrupted or cancelled as a result of the weather forecast.

The Steam Packet says it will issue a final decision by 5.30pm.

The Manannan is due into Douglas from Liverpool at 10pm, so isn't expected to be affected by the strongest winds.
