The 18:00 sailing from Lymington has been cancelled as well as the 20:05 sailing form Lymington and the 19:00 and 21:10 from Yarmouth.

It’s understood that the injured crew member is the Chief Engineer and therefore the ferry cannot sail without his presence, or a replacement Chief Engineer.

Those on board the cancelled 18:00 are to be transferred onto the next available sailing – the delayed 18:05 from Yarmouth.
