Southampton football fans travelling to and from the Isle of Wight for the team’s match against Crystal Palace tonight (Tuesday) are being warned of potential travel disruption.

A Met Office weather warning for wind comes into force at 6pm, for 24 hours, as Storm Eleanor hits the Island.

Red Funnel has said its Red Jet service between Cowes and Southampton is likely to experience major disruption from 4pm today.

The company is advising any customers travelling to the game at St Mary’s Stadium to use the 6pm car ferry from East Cowes, returning to the Island on the 10.30pm ferry.
