WIGHTLINK has cancelled a number of car ferry sailings between Fishbourne and Portsmouth today (Saturday).
The company has blamed the cancellations on ongoing engine problems with the St Cecilia car ferry, which was withdrawn from service yesterday.
The cancelled sailings are the 11.30am and 1.30pm from Portsmouth Gunwharf and the 12.30pm and 2.30pm from Fishbourne.
The service is also subject to delays of around 45 minutes, due to high winds.
Wightlink's Fastcat passenger service between Ryde and Portsmouth and car ferry service between Yarmouth and Lymington are unaffected and running as normal.
* UPDATE Delays are now running at around one hour and there are long queues at the Fishbourne terminal.
Passengers travelling from Fishbourne are advised not to arrive until 30 minutes after their booked sailing time due to the congestion. Passengers travelling from Portsmouth should still check in on time.
Engineers are on board the St Cecilia but have been unable to rectify the fault with the engines.
