"Unforeseen" staff shortages behind weekend bus delays

Isle of Man Transport issues statement after Saturday's disruption

"Unforeseen" staff shortages are the reason behind a number of delays to bus services over the weekend.

That's from Isle of Man Transport, which has issued a statement.

It announced the changes to twelve routes in total early on Saturday evening, with delays of up to two hours.

Journeys to and from Douglas, Ramsey, Peel, South and the Willaston and Ballachrink areas were all affected.

In a statement Isle of Man Transport says "the frequency of some services was reduced to minimise impact".

And it has apologised to anyone who was inconvenienced.
