One Hurt In Wightlink Ferry Engine Room Fire At Yarmouth

Emergency crews were called to Yarmouth on Tuesday

One person was hurt in a fire on a Wightlink ferry in Yarmouth, on Tuesday night.

Five fire engines and two support vehicles, including the aerial ladder, were called to the West Wight port just after 10pm.

An ambulance crew and Coastguards were also called to the Wight Sky ferry, which arrived in Yarmouth at 9.50pm.

Yarmouth’s RNLI lifeboat crew, which moors alongside the Wightlink berth, were put on standby.

Isle of Wight Radio has been told that passengers heard an on-board fire alarm sound before the ferry had docked, but disembarkation was carried out as normal.

Wightlink says its Yarmouth-Lymington service will not run on Wednesday:

“Sorry, our Lym-Yar sailings are suspended tomorrow morning due to a mechanical issue on one of our vessels. Further updates to follow.”
