Ben-my-Chree sailings cancelled due to weather

This evening's Ben-my-Chree sailings have been cancelled because of the weather conditions.

The Steam Packet Company has confirmed the 7.45pm crossing to Heysham and return sailing to Douglas at 2.15am won't go ahead.

Winds are forecast to reach gale force eight this evening, resulting in the state of sea becoming rough, although conditions are due to improve overnight.

Anyone booked to travel on the affected sailings can contact the Steam Packet's reservations team on 661661.
