M.V Helliar in Drydock

A Serco NorthLink Ferries spokesperson said: “The scheduled departure of the M.V Helliar today has been cancelled due to technical difficulties with one of the vessel’s rudders. As a result, it will be placed in drydock so that the problem can be investigated immediately and any necessary repairs carried out. Updates will be provided as soon as repair schedules have been identified.”
