Ferry fault on Yell Sound

A fault with MV Daggri has reduced the Yell Sound to a single vessel service.

THE FERRY service between Yell and the Shetland mainland will be reduced to a single vessel on Tuesday due to a technical fault on one of its vessels.

Shetland Islands Council said the MV Daggri had developed a fault which will require a replacement part to be sourced from the Scottish mainland.

The Yell Sound service will continue to run using MV Daglien, which will be operating to the shift vessel timetable. Prior bookings have been cancelled and vehicles travelling should park in lane order for the next available sailing.

A spokesman for the SIC’s ferry service said engineers were working to resolve the fault as soon as possible and they apologised for any inconvenience caused to passengers.
