Ferries across the Mersey back on schedule

Mersey FerryA full Mersey Ferries service resumed yesterday (Tuesday) following two months of disruption after the Pier Head landing stage sank in bad weather. Now a new landing stage a 5-minute walk north of the Isle of Man stage, is restoring normal service. For the last two months the ferries, run by Merseytravel, have shared a berth with the Isle of Man Steam Packet Company. During this time passenger numbers fell by about 16% so Merseytravel is now hoping for a steady uplift over the summer. (Photo courtesy Liverpool Pictorial/Terry Horton)
