Storm Ciara: Further Isle of Man ferry cancellations – BBC News

High winds caused by remnants of Storm Ciara have hit more ferry services between the Isle of Man and Lancashire.

Tuesday’s sailings between Douglas and Heysham have been cancelled and further crossings could be disrupted, Isle of Man Steam Packet Company said.

A decision over the 19:45 GMT crossing would be made by 17:30, a spokesman added.

Gusts of up to 60mph (96kmh) have been recorded since the storm hit on Sunday afternoon.

The cancellation of Monday’s sailings of the Ben-my-Chree meant no newspapers were delivered to the island on Tuesday.

Ronaldsway met office also issued a warning of possible coastal overtopping at high tide, particularly on Peel Promenade, which could lead to a “risk of travel disruption”.
