Fuel problem delays Ben-my-Chree slightly

Following sailings not expected to be affected

The Ben-my-Chree suffered a fuel problem this morning, which resulted in one of its engines having to be turned off briefly, according to the Steam Packet.

That led to a slight delay to the vessel's arrival in Heysham, with it getting in just before midday.

It will seemingly have no impact on the Ben's departure from the port this afternoon, as according to the website it is due to set off at 2.30pm as scheduled.
