Ferry passengers travelling to Guernsey have been stuck on board the Commodore Clipper for more than 24 hours.

The service which runs between the Channel Islands and Portsmouth was unable to dock in Guernsey on Monday due to strong north-easterly winds.

Of about 60 passengers on board, eight left the boat in Jersey at 18:00 GMT having left Portsmouth at 09:00.

The ferry and remaining passengers returned to the UK with the ship due to the sail again at 11:00.

It is scheduled to arrive in Guernsey at 23:00 after again visiting Jersey.

Meanwhile, fast ferry sailings between the islands and the UK and France were cancelled on Monday.
