Sailings between the Isle of Man and Birkenhead have been cancelled until the end of the year due to a steering fault on the vessel Ben-my-Chree.

In a statement the Isle of Man Steam Packet Company said it would be out of action until at least 31 December.

The company has brought its fastcraft Manannan, which was getting its winter overhaul, back in to service to do sailings between Douglas and Heysham.

The company advised customers to check its website for more information.
