Have your say

A HOVERCRAFT that was taken out of service following a fire last month is back in action.

The Hovertravel craft, which is normally on the Southsea to Ryde route, was out of use while parts were ordered. The fire was onboard on September 29.

A spokesman for the Maritime and Coastguard Agency said the hovercraft has been inspected and is now back in use.
