WIGHTLINK has cancelled several sailings from the Isle of Wight this morning (Tuesday).

The company has cancelled the 7.30am, 9.30am and 11.30am from Fishbourne and the 6.30am, 8.30am and 10.30am from Portsmouth.

The cancellations were blamed on operational difficulties.

In a travel update issued after the cancellations, Wightlink warned of severe delays on the route.

Shortly after 8am, a spokesman said: "Due to the failure of our linkspan this morning the above service is experiencing severe delays.

"No further information is available at the moment, but as soon as possible an update will be issued."

*At 10.04am the company said on Twitter that the linkspan had been fixed, however the 10.30am Portsmouth sailing and the 11.30am Fishbourne sailings remained cancelled.

Last night Hovertravel was forced to cancel its service to Southsea due to high winds, however crossings resumed today (Tuesday).
