Ferry crossings on the Northumberland Strait have been cancelled for Saturday and Sunday due to high winds.

Sunday would have been the last day of the season for Northumberland Ferries Limited and crossings are now finished for the year.

This time of year the ferry makes three crossings from each side a day.
