NORTH Sea ferry services were cancelled due to the gales battering the North-East coast today.
DFDS cancelled last night’s sailing by the King Seaways from the Port of Tyne to Amsterdam.
The Princess Seaways did leave Ijmuiden to make the reverse journey, but was delayed.
It was unable to dock because of the wind and had been held off the coast at North Shields since before 9am. and wasn’t expected into Newcastle until noon.
The 5.30pm departure for Holland has already been cancelled.
