A REDUCED service is running between Portsmouth and Fishbourne following a devastating fire on a Wightlink car ferry yesterday.

An investigation is underway by the Maritime and Coastguard Agency after a fire broke out aboard the St Faith Wightlink Ferry at about 9.30am.

The vessel was on route from Portsmouth to Fishbourne when the UK Coastguard received the call about the fire on the bridge wing port side.

All of the ship’s 52 passengers disembarked safely from the vessel.

Wightlink are today running a revised timetable on the Portsmouth to Fishbourne route.
