Portsmouth to Isle of Wight ferry crossings return to normal

Man’s horror fall onto M27 near Whiteley stuns witnesses

Have your say

CAR ferry sailings between Portsmouth and Fishbourne were cancelled today because of a technical fault.

Wightlink, the company which operates the service, has had to cancel the 8.30am, 10.30am, and 12.30pm services from Gunwharf, because of a problem with one ferry’s mezzanine deck.

A Wightlink spokeswoman said the company could not run the services while repairing the mezzanine deck.

The ferry, which was due to be cancelled all day, came back into operation this afternoon and timetables are set to run as usual into this evening.
