The Bressay ferry Leirna will be out of service today due to problems with her main engine which were identified early this morning.
The Whalsay ferry Hendra is currently on her way to provide cover between Lerwick and Bressay, from mid-morning.
The Linga will be the only vessel operating on the Whalsay route today, to the Linga‘s usual timetable. There will be an extra run at 1.15pm. Bookings are suspended and all vehicles are to use the booked lane.
The council will provide updates later in the day when more information is available on the engine problems with the Leirna and an apology was issued to passengers for the interruption to the service.
