    Director of Harbours, Captain Michael Brew comments:

    “The increase in passengers travelling on the Heysham Route is the only positive in this month’s passenger figures, with all the other core scheduled routes showing significant falls in passenger numbers. Some of these falls may be attributable to more TT related traffic actually travelling in June this year.”
