"We are dealing directly with those passengers involved"

The Isle of Man Steam Packet Company has responded, following claims multiple motorbikes and cars were damaged during a sailing to the UK on Saturday (31 Aug).

Pictures were shared on social media of a number of bikes on their sides - reportedly moved from their parking positions following rough conditions in the Irish Sea.

It's alleged they were attached to the railing at the side of the car deck, but then broke free.

In a statement, the Steam Packet confirmed that: "some damage was caused to a few bikes and some cars on Saturday."

The company says: "we are dealing directly with those passengers involved."
