UPDATED 17:40*
FERRY services on the Isle of Wight between Yarmouth and Lymington have been suspended due to technical problems. 

Wightlink engineers are working to resolve a power problem which prevented the 8.50am crossing from Yarmouth from leaving the port.

Wightlink apologised for the inconvenience caused and asked travellers who think they may be affected to call 0871 376 1000.

*Wightlink have announced that the earlier problem has been resolved and services between Yarmouth and Lymington have resumed.

Sailings are now operating to the scheduled timetable.

hello to all you old blog forum people, things dont change do they. Well said Mr Cross as for Mr Crowe he does live in another planet, he has sowed a seed and his band of followers who think outside the box lol, have not got a clue. i am suprised he has not asked us to bring a brick along and build our own bridge. and then name it....CROWES FLY BRIDGE. Its a lovely idea having a bridge, but i think we would wait more than 2 hours to cross it, would be like sitting on the M25 on a good day.never mind the festival saga.as they say KEEP CALM AND CARRY ON.

Crowe maybe its you who needs to take his head out of his own backside and take a look around . You and your ilk have helped cause this situation with your compliance and complicity , and now in you twilight years have the luxury to tell us all how it really is . Im in favour of a fixed link but we are not going to see one for a while . Maybe if you got off these and old ventor blog forums and got out into the real world you could do some real campaigning .

Might I respectfully suggest that those trying to belittle me and take a poke at me at every opportunity, do a little research first?

'Egg on face' comes to mind.

Please do have a nice evening.

He HAS told us - time and time again. It will land near Gosport - no-one has asked them. He's pretty unspecific about it's take off point over here - probably no one's asked anyone near that point either. It will then travel up to the side of Gosport and Fareham to his imaginary junction on the M275 - you guessed, no one's asked the affected residents of this already gridlocked area either. A total pipe dream, but EVERYONE ELSE is wrong.....

Mike why do you contradict yourself so often. Can you please tell us more about your bridge, like where and when. oh and this wonderful Island that you are trying so hard to protect, can you tell us how a bridge will help you in that particular cause . You cannot champion both causes.

A causeway combined with tidal power really is a good idea, it would be interesting to learn what progress the DOT & DOE have made on the matter

Mr Smith, sarcasm is the lowest form of wit. I have ignored your contributions in the past, I will continue to do so.

So now you admit you were ignorant about buiding in the past. So why should we believe you now with your Bridge? Which is it? Stop all building or lets have one last attempt and build a bridge?
