Pushed back sailing to go ahead as winds ease

Ben-my-Chree due to depart Douglas at 9:30am

The Island is waking up to gale force winds this morning, responsible for cancelling the overnight sailings to and from Heysham.

However the Ben-my-Chree is due to sail, albeit at a slightly later time this morning.

The 8:45am journey has been pushed back to 9:30am with passengers asked to check-in no later than 9am.

It's as strong winds and gusts of up to 55mph are hitting the Island, but are set to ease throughout the morning.
