Further sailings cancellations possible tonight

Tue, 29 Nov 2011

There are further cancellations to ferry services.

Tonight's Douglas to Heysham sailing at 19.45 and the overnight return are cancelled.

Tomorrow's 8.45am Douglas to Heysham will leave early at 7.00am.

Passengers are asked to check-in no later than 6.30am.

Meanwhile, questions about the causes of recent cancelled sailings have been asked the House of Keys today.

Infrastructure Minister David Cretney says the captain of the Ben my Chree makes the decision based on weather conditions and whether or not the ferry will be able to manoeuvre properly - because of a damaged bow thruster.

Mr Cretney says repairs to this aren't likely to be carried out until the new year, when the Manannan can take over passenger services.
