Mechanical issues are being blamed for a further 12 cancellations on Wightlink’s Fishbourne – Portsmouth Route today (Wednesday).

The 7.30am, 9.30am, 11.30am, 2.30pm, 4.30pm and 6.30pm from Fishbourne have been removed from this morning’s timetable, as well as the 6.30am, 8.30am, 10.30am, 1.30pm, 3.30pm and 5.30pm from Portsmouth.

The ferry operator says we should expect delays at terminals and on the surrounding roads, and has apologised to customers.
