Hovertravel has been forced to suspend its cross-Solent service this afternoon (Saturday) due to technical issues with both of its craft.
Solent Flyer and Island Flyer are both out of action leaving the travel operator without a craft to run on the Ryde-Southsea route.
It comes following a week of problems, including an incident which saw passengers having to walk across the sand at Ryde.
Tickets are being accepted on Wightlink’s Fastcat service to and from Ryde Pier Head.
An update is expected at 16:00 but it’s unclear if the service will be able to resume at this time.
UPDATE – Services have resumed as of 17:45.
