The troubled Cowes Floating Bridge has once again been pulled from service owing to an issue with a prow cable.
It’s been confirmed by the Isle of Wight Council that the East Cowes to Cowes service has been suspended this morning (Sunday) and won’t resume until repairs are completed on Monday.
A replacement foot passenger service across the River Medina has been launched. Motorists are having to divert via Newport though.
This suspension of service is the latest in a long running saga surrounding Floating Bridge No.6 – with more issues than can be sensibly listed.
Council officials apologise for any inconvenience caused.
UPDATE MONDAY – The floating bridge is back up and running as of 11:15.
