The vessel returned and re-berthed, and the scheduled crossing was delayed by ~4,5 hours. The ship departed from Newhaven at~ 2:30 pm.
Newhaven's East Pier was closed for damage assessment and repairs until December 16. Two DFDS channel ferry crossings were cancelled due to weather. The affected voyages were Newhaven-Dieppe (planned departure 11 pm) and the return Dieppe-Newhaven (departure 5:30 am).
