ISLE of Wight cross-Solent travel faces disruption today (Thursday, November 24) due to a mix of technical issues and poor weather conditions.

Red Funnel's vehicle ferry, the 4.30pm and 7.30pm from Southampton and 6pm and 9pm from East Cowes have been cancelled.

These cancellations are due to a technical issue with the AFT engine onboard Red Falcon.

The cross-Solent travel provider's Red Jet service also faces disruption, due to adverse weather, until at least 4.45pm this afternoon.

Red Jet says commuters may encounter delays/cancellations from both Cowes and Southampton.

All Wightlink services are currently running to timetable.
