Exhaust leak fix delays Ben-my-Chree

Sailing delayed by more than an hour and a half

This morning's Steam Packet sailing from Douglas to Heysham was delayed by more than an hour and a half.

A 'small repair' had to be carried out on an exhaust leak.

The vessel had been due to leave for Heysham 45 minutes earlier than normal this morning, at 8am, but ended up setting off at 9.39am.

That's had a knock-on effect with this afternoon's return, which is scheduled to leave Heysham at 2.30pm instead of 1.45pm.
