Ferry services on the Uig triangle route were thrown into disarray yesterday (Monday 3 August) after an extra-wide delivery got stuck as it was leaving the ferry.

The MV Hebrides was due to leave Lochmaddy at 11.50am, but was held back as the crew tried to disembark a lorry carrying a static caravan from the vehicle deck.

By the time the load had been safely manoeuvred to land, the ferry was running almost three hours late and the 4pm departure from Tarbert to Uig yesterday did not sail until shortly after 7pm.
