The Isle of Wight’s Floating Bridge is out of service this morning (Thursday) – with reports of cars having to reverse off.

Isle of Wight Radio listeners say the Cowes-East Cowes service ground to a halt shortly after 8am, due to issues with the chains.

Vehicles are reportedly having to reverse off on the East Cowes side.

The Jenny Boat is being brought into service for foot passengers only, it is understood.

**UPDATE AT 10:36**

The Cowes Floating Bridge is now back in service, say the Isle of Wight Council.
