Gale force winds forecast for the Irish Sea have forced the cancellation of ferry sailings between the Isle of Man and Heysham in Lancashire.

The scheduled 19:45 GMT journey from the island on the Ben-My-Chree vessel will not sail and the 02:15 return journey on Friday will also not run.

The Steam Packet Company's remaining services on Friday are expected to go ahead as scheduled.

All passengers due to travel have been advised to contact the company.
