Freight ferry out of action

NorthLink cargo vessel the Helliar is heading to dry dock following a problem with one of its propellers.

Once in dry-dock the problem will be looked at and repairs carried out.

In the meantime the Hildasay is operating on a revised freight schedule and the ferry company said it is “liaising closely with all stakeholders”.

Anyone with queries should contact the company’s freight department on 08456060449 or go to for more information.
