HOVERTRAVEL ran reduced services early today (Thursday) after one craft was withdrawn from service.

The two-craft-an-hour service from Ryde and Southsea came a week after an engine failure caused similar reductions in timetabling.

A Hovertravel spokesman said: "The service returned to normal after a short time but unfortunately the website was not updated and told people we were running a shuttle service for most of the day."
