FLOODING has resulted in delays for the Wightlink ferry in Yarmouth.
Heavy rain combined with a midday high tide meant the area around the Isle of Wight ferry port was under water and the Lymington to Yarmouth ferry unable to dock.
Wightlink marketing manager, Kerry Jackson, said: "If the boat docks, then it will create a wash which will only add to the flooding in the area.
"A flood alert was issued this morning warning that there may be some disruption on the Yarmouth to Lymington route.
"The tide is starting to go down now, so hopefully services will be back to normal very shortly. There have been no cancellations or suspensions."
The Isle of Wight Council said on Twitter it had suspended the Cowes chain ferry service due to the high tide.
*It was back in service at around 2pm.
