Travel report update

Morning weather and travel: mist descends on parts of Hampshire

Have your say

PORTSMOUTH explosive disposal company Ramora UK is offering free distress flare disposal to sailors taking part in Cowes Week.

It hopes its service to Cowes Week in August will help the safe, legal clearance of out-of-date flares and help sailors avoid fines.

The company will have a disposal van at Shepards Wharf Marina, on the Isle of Wight, on Friday, August 5 between 3pm and 6pm.
