A NUMBER of Wightlink ferry sailings have been cancelled this afternoon (Sunday) due to a shortage of staff.

On the Yarmouth to Lymington route, the 4pm, 6pm and 8pm sailings from Lymington have all been cancelled.

From Yarmouth, the 5.05pm, 7.05pm and 9pm sailings have also been dropped.

This, Wightlink says, is on account of an absence of essential crew.

The cross-Solent operator has apologised for any inconvenience caused.
