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.

The Isle of Wight Council has confirmed that due to the upcoming local and General elections, the naming of the Cowes/East Cowes chain ferry is being delayed.

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.
