THE Cowes floating bridge has been suspended this morning (Wednesday) due to the high tide.

The Isle of Wight Council said shortly before 10am that it would remain suspended for around two hours.

The passenger launch will not operate either, due to flooding.

In a statement, the council said: "The launch is also unable to operate as the tide has started to flood the pontoon, making it unsafe for passengers."

The Environment Agency has issued a flood alert for the Isle of Wight today, with Cowes and East Cowes likely to be affected by the high tide.
