Meanwhile, the north and southbound sailings of the freight ships Helliar and Hildasay scheduled for 6pm were both cancelled.

All Pentland Firth sailings were cancelled.

Hrossey’s scheduled sailing from Aberdeen for Lerwick tomorrow was to be kept under review as were all tomorrow’s freight and Pentland Firth sailings.
