THE BLUEMULL Sound ferry service will be suspended this afternoon (Saturday) due to crew shortages.

The service, which runs between Yell, Unst and Fetlar, will stop at 1.45pm before resuming at 5pm.

There is crew sickness, and no engineer cover in the afternoon. Once back in service the crew will put in extra runs where they can.

Shetland Islands Council said it wished to apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Yesterday (Friday) the service ran with a single vessel due to crew sickness.

Any updates will be available through the council’s voicebank service on 01595 743971.
