It was due to be announced tomorrow (Friday) but now a decision on the name of the Isle of Wight’s new Floating Bridge has been postponed.

A council spokesperson said more details will be ‘circulated at the appropriate time’.

Floaty McFloatface and Blyskawica had been leading the way in recent online petitions.
