Carry ID 'just in case' says Steam Packet

People travelling by sea are being advised to carry identification with them "just in case".

The Steam Packet has made the plea - but confirmed it does not require people to present ID before they travel. 

However the company says other authorities may want to see it following a terror attack in Manchester on Monday which saw the UK's terror threat level raised to critical. 

As a result of this some police services at ports - including Heysham - are conducting additional security checks. 

Chief executive Mark Woodward is also asking passengers to allow extra time for security and says it would be "sensible" to carry ID as a precaution.
