THE Manx Independent will be in the shops at about 11am today because it, and the UK national newspapers, are being flown to the island after the Steam Packet service was cancelled.
This morning’s Ben-my-Chree sailing from Douglas to Heysham has been delayed because of stormy conditions in the Irish Sea.
It is due to leave at 10.30am, instead of 8.45am. Passengers are advised to check in by 9.30am.
This will have a knock-on effect on the return sailing, which normally leaves Heysham at 2.15pm. It will leave at about 4.30pm. Passengers are advised to check in at 2.30pm.
Subsequent sailings are scheduled as normal.
