Ben my Chree returns after failing to berth in Heysham

"The Master took the decision to return to Douglas"

Passengers on board the Ben my Chree have returned to the Isle of Man after the ship was unable to berth in Heysham.

The Steam Packet Company's vessel was due in Heysham for 12.15am, but it wasn't until 2am that the decision to return was made.

It's being blamed on stronger than forecast winds.

As a result, passengers expecting to be catching the 2.15am journey were unable, as this was cancelled.

However, according to the Steam Packet's timetable, all of today's sailings are running as planned.
