Disruptions on Yell Sound

FERRY services across Yell Sound were suspended for two and half hours on Sunday morning after the ferry Daggri developed a fault with one of her thrusters control units.

There was no service between the Shetland mainland and the north isles between 7am and 9.30am.

Colin Manson of the Shetland Islands Council’s ferry services said engineers got the ferry back running by replacing the faulty unit with a working one from her sister vessel Dagalien.

On Sundays a one ferry service is in operation across the sound. Mr Manson said he was confident that by Monday morning both ferries, the Daggri and the Dagalien, would be operational again.
