Tonight and tomorrow’s sailings may not go ahead – according to the latest update from the Steam Packet Company.

The Ben-my-Chree service to Heysham tonight at 8.30pm is in doubt – meanwhile on Saturday, the voyage to the Island at 2.45am, the crossing over to the Lancashire Port at 8.45am and its return at 2.15pm are also facing disruption.

It’s down to forecast adverse weather and a decision on this evening’s service and the one in the early hours of tomorrow will be made no later than 5.30pm this evening.

Meanwhile, a final verdict on Saturday’s afternoon and evening voyages is expected to be made by 7am tomorrow morning.
