Morning and afternoon sailings cancelled

Sailings this morning and this afternoon have been cancelled.

The 8.45am service to Heysham and its return at 2.15pm this afternoon were called off due to poor weather conditions.

Meanwhile, the crossing to the Lancashire Port tonight at 7.45pm and the return at 2.15am on Saturday morning are still in doubt - a decision on those will be made no later than 5.30pm this evening.

Finally, the Birkenhead journeys at 8am and 2pm tomorrow are also subject to delays or cancellation - a final verdict on these is expected by 6.30am on Saturday.
