Irish Sea ferry unable to dock in high seas

Ferry passengers have spent the night anchored in the Irish Sea after their vessel was unable to dock at Fishguard last night.

Stena Line says the vessel, travelling from Rosslare, could not berth due to high winds and rough seas.

It is currently about six kilometres off the Welsh coast and will try to land again at midday today.

Stena Line cancelled last night's planned sailing of the Stena Europe from Rosslare to Fishguard.

Services on the Dublin to Holyhead route are operating with delays.
