Sailings cancelled due to strong winds

Adverse weather halts Ben-my-Chree journeys

This evening's Ben-my-Chree sailing from Douglas to Heysham and her overnight return journey have been cancelled.

It's due to strong winds forecast from Storm Eleanor which have seen the Met Office at Ronaldsway issue an amber weather warning.

The Ben was scheduled to leave the Island at 7.45pm later and depart Heysham at 2.15am on Wednesday morning.

A final decision on the rest of tomorrow's sailings will be made at 7am tomorrow morning.
