Have your say

Crew sickness has forced the cancellation of a ferry sailing.

The Wightlink Portsmouth Harbour to Ryde catamaran service at 3.50pm on Wednesday has been cancelled due to the sickness of a crew member.

The return sailing at 4.10pm is also cancelled.

A spokesman for Wightlink said: ‘We are unable to move the vessel without this vital member of crew, due to safety reasons.

‘We’re sorry for the inconvenience.’
