High winds caused by the remnants of Storm Ciara have hit ferry services between the Isle of Man and Lancashire.

All of Tuesday's sailings between Douglas and Heysham have been cancelled, Isle of Man Steam Packet Company (IOMSPC) said.

Several flights from Ronaldsway Airport have also faced disruption, with some delayed by more than two hours.

Gusts of up to 60mph (95km/h) have been recorded since the storm hit on Sunday afternoon.

The cancellation of Monday's sailings of the Ben-my-Chree meant no newspapers were delivered to the island on Tuesday.

Ronaldsway Met Office also issued a warning of possible coastal overtopping at high tide, particularly on Peel Promenade, which could lead to a "risk of travel disruption".

With the winds set to ease overnight, Wednesday's 08:45 GMT ferry crossing from Douglas to Heysham is due to depart as scheduled, an IOMSPC spokesman said.
