Repaired Isle of Man ferry to resume sailings

Repaired Manx ferry, the Ben-my-Chree, is due to resume sailings to and from the Isle of Man after Dry Dock repairs.

The vessel, which has been out of service for three days, was repaired at Cammell Laird shipyard.

The Steam Packet Company said repairs were made to the bow thrust unit which was damaged earlier this year after the vessel ingested debris.

The Ben-my-Chree's next journey from Heysham to Douglas will be a freight-only service at 0215 on Tuesday.

It is then scheduled to resume normal passenger services for the rest of the day.

A spokesman from the Steam Packet company said the fast-craft ferry, Manannan covered passenger and freight requirements all weekend and more than 250 freight units were cleared before the weekend.
