FERRIES to Gosport will stop running for two hours on Sunday while a Falklands commemoration ceremony takes place.

Gosport Borough Council has organised the event, in the town’s Falkland Gardens, to mark the 30th anniversary of the Falklands War, from 10am to 12.15pm.

It will include a Wessex Sea King fly-past at 11am.

The last ferry to Portsmouth will leave at 10.15am and the last from the city will leave at 10.23am. Ferries will start running again at around 12.15pm, after the ceremony.

Gosport’s bus station and taxi rank will also close.

Buses will be moved to Walpole Road for the duration of the ceremony and taxis to Mumby Road.

No bikes will be allowed to park at the ferry’s bicycle racks and any left there will be removed and taken to a secure location.

Temporary bike racks are being set up in nearby Minnett Road.
