Brew reveals 'excellent' figures

Sea traffic through Douglas has increased, for the tenth consecutive month.

So far this year the total figure is up nearly 20% for vehicles and just over 12% for foot passengers.

In October the increase was just over 8% for passengers and just under 9% for vehicles.

Steam Packet figures show a drop on the Belfast route and also to Heysham.

However, there has been a significant rise to the Island's traditional port of entry to the United Kingdom, Liverpool.

Director of Harbours Captain Mike Brew (pictured) describes the overall figures as 'excellent'.
