This shocking video footage filmed by Jason Cheetham shows a ferry that had left twelve quays smashing into a port.
The ferry from Birkenhead arrived at the Isle man in strong winds on Sunday night and was swept into the port causing damage.
It crashed into the King Edward VIII pier, destroying parts of a barrier and caused what looks like a burst pipe to flood the car deck.
Isle of Man Steam Packet Company chief executive Mark Woodward said: ‘We apologise to our passengers whose travel plans have been disrupted as a result of this unfortunate incident.
“We will do all we can to minimise the disruption and to get services back to normal as soon as possible.’
