STENA Line has confirmed that a passenger was escorted from one of its ships by the PSNI on Sunday evening after "inappropriate behaviour" on board.

The Belfast Harbour Police has said it is investigating the incident, which happened aboard the Cairnryan to Belfast sailing, which left Scotland at 7.30pm.

It is understood that security staff spoke to a man who had been accused of 'voyeurism' by other passengers.

A Stena Line spokeswoman said: "Stena Line can confirm that following inappropriate behaviour by a passenger on its 19.30 sailing from Cairnryan to Belfast on Sunday, onboard staff, in line with company procedures, alerted police.

"The passenger involved was escorted from the ship by officers when it docked in Belfast and the company is currently assisting the police’s investigation team."

A spokesman for Belfast Harbour Police said: "We can confirm we are investigating an incident which occurred on Sunday evening."
