Ben-my-Chree recovers from chimney stack fire

A suspected chimney stack lagging fire was detected on the Ben-my-Chree this morning.

It's estimated to have started at around 8:45am on the crossing from Douglas to Heysham.

Steam Packet engineers have since contained the blaze, completed their investigations and gave the vessel the go-ahead to continue on with her journey.

No passengers or crew have been injured and there's no significant damage.

The ship is now travelling to Belfast as scheduled.
