#StrandedFerry - A Stena Line ferry reports RTE News will make another attempt to dock at the Port of Fishguard, Wales at around midday today - weather permitting.

The ferry, with 87 passengers and 59 crew on board, departed Rosslare yesterday at 9am but failed to dock twice due to high winds and rough seas.

A spokeswoman for Stena Line said: "The health and safety of passengers and crew is of paramount importance to Stena Line, therefore the 87 passengers and 59 crew members will remain onboard overnight until a second attempt at docking takes place at midday tomorrow."

Services on the Dublin to Holyhead crossing are expected to run as normal today, but intending passengers are advised to check in advance.

Yesterday, the UK was lashed by heavy rain as Storm Angus caused flooding and travel chaos across many parts of the country. For more on this click here
