Dublin-bound Stena ferry returns to Holyhead after smoke reports

  • 11-29-2013

A Stena line ferry had to return to port in Anglesey after reports of a fire on board.

Emergency services were called on Friday after smoke was spotted coming from a refrigeration unit on the car deck of the Holyhead to Dublin Stena Europe ferry.

No fire was found and the Stena Europe was able to leave for Dublin.

Two RNLI lifeboats from Holyhead were launched as well as a search and rescue helicopter from RAF Valley.

A Stena spokesman said it was a minor incident after smoke was noticed as the ferry left Holyhead at 08:55 GMT.

"As a precautionary measure, the ship returned to Holyhead Port by which time the incident had been resolved.

"At no time were passengers or crew in any danger and the ship departed again for Dublin at 1045hrs."
