Severe gale force winds forecast for the Irish Sea have forced the cancellation of ferry sailings between the Isle of Man and the UK.

Manx ferry operators said Wednesday's scheduled 14:15 GMT journey from Heysham in Lancashire will not sail to the Isle of Man.

The 19:45 service to Heysham from Douglas has also been cancelled along, as has Thursday's 02:15 return sailing.

All passengers have been advised to contact the Steam Packet Company.
