With strong winds forecast tomorrow (Saturday) morning, the Steam Packet Company is warning passengers of potential delays.

The Manannan is set to depart for Liverpool at 10am, but the firm will monitor the situation and issue an update at 8am.

A statement released this afternoon indicates the sailing may be subject to a two-hour delay.

Yesterday (Thursday) changes were announced in timings for the weekend’s services to Heysham.

A combination of tidal conditions and a lack of agreed dredging at the port, which means there will be insufficient under-keel clearance, led to the schedule being revised.
