The Cowes Floating Bridge has been involved in a collision with a sailing yacht on the River Medina this afternoon (Friday).
The 2 vessels came into contact whilst the floating bridge was docking at East Cowes at just gone 16:00.
Vehicles have been able to unload onto the slipway at East Cowes, albeit at an unusual angle.
It is understood the Floating Bridge was being assisted by the now-regular tug at the time of the incident.
Cowes Harbour Master is on scene and is attempting to pull the yacht clear.
The cross-Medina service appears to be temporarily suspended whilst the incident is dealt with.
UPDATE @ 16:30 – The obstruction has been moved and the Cowes Floating Bridge is back in service.
