THE BLUEMULL Sound ferry service is back to normal following breakdown delays.

Following a fault with the Fivla on Tuesday morning the service was reduced to a single vessel.

The problem was fixed and the service was back to normal by midday.

The Fivla is currently standing in for the Bigga, which is in dry dock.

There have been a number of faults on the North Isles’ ferries in recent weeks, with an issue disrupting services on the Yell Sound route earlier this month.

In August problems also emerged with the linkspan at Ulsta.
