NorthLink carried out anchor test on ferry at Lerwick harbour

NorthLink carried out a routine anchor test at Lerwick harbour last night (Tuesday).

A passenger ferry could be seen anchored in the middle of the harbour, in front of The Lodberry.

NorthLink said it was a planned anchor test, which it needs to carry out every six months or so.

A spokesman said Lerwick Harbour had been informed, as were passengers.

He said it was “standard operating procedure”.

The journey continued as normal after the test was completed.
