FOG has led to travel disruption for Isle of Wight commuters this morning (Tuesday).

Hovertravel has suspended its service due to the conditions and there have been delays on Wightlink services from Ryde, Yarmouth and Fishbourne.

Red Funnel said there were delays on its Red Jet service.

*Wightlink and Red Funnel said services had returned to normal by around 11.20am

**Hovertravel announced this afternoon that a one craft shuttle service would operate from 4:15pm with arrivals and departures occuring as frequently as possible, but not to the standard timetable.

Maybe something to do with today's date, as perhaps the article about the woman lost in the fog on Ryde beach with her dog?????
