A tree has come down across the main road through Wroxall tonight (Sunday).

Southern Vectis says Route 3 buses from Ventnor to Ryde have been delayed by approximately 25 minutes and will be diverting locally via Whitwell. Stops in Godshill and Upper Ventnor are not being served.

Motorists should divert via Shanklin Old Village or Whitwell

UPDATE @ 23:20 – The fallen tree at Wroxall has now been cleared. The road has now reopened and Southern Vectis’ Route 3 buses have now returned to their normal line of route.

Must have been a young inexperienced tree jumping out into the road when there wasn’t a car coming
