FERRIES from Portsmouth to the Isle of Wight are seeing delays of around 30 minutes this morning.

Passengers travelling from Portsmouth to Fishbourne have fallen victim to the delays, which were caused by a mechanical fault.

Wightlink Travel tweeted: ‘The 30 minute delay from Portsmouth to Fishbourne is due to damage caused to the propeller blade seal.’
