Breaking News First reported by Island Echo


UPDATED: Those crossing the Solent with Hovertravel this morning (Tuesday) face disruption to their journey as the travel operator is running a shuttle service. 

Arrivals and departures from Ryde and Southsea are occurring as frequently as possible, but not to the standard timetable.

Hovertravel are yet to state what has forced the reduced service, but it appears to be as a result of an issue with the windscreen wipers on Solent Flyer.
