PORTSMOUTH HARBOUR BOMB ALERT: Wightlink ferries disrupted

Have your say

Wightlink Ferries were disrupted today by the Portsmouth Harbour bomb alert.

Wightlink’s Portsmouth-Fishbourne and Portsmouth Harbour-Ryde Pier Head services are being affected following the discovery of an unexploded device in the north of Portsmouth Harbour near the International Ferryport.

A spokeswoman said: ‘The 11:47 Wightlink catamaran service from Ryde Pier Head to Portsmouth Harbour is returning to Ryde with its customers.

‘St Cecilia, the 12:00 car ferry sailing from Portsmouth, sailed to Fishbourne as normal but St Clare, the 12:00 sailing from Fishbourne has not left the Isle of Wight.’
