SOUTHERN Vectis mark this year's Father's Day with free travel for dads, for every child buying a 24 hour rover ticket on the day.

Island youngsters are being offered the chance to take their dads on any bus for free on June 16.

Drivers will provide complimentary travel for fathers, as long as they are accompanied by a child buying a rover ticket.

Nikki Honer, Southern Vectis head of communications, said: "Choosing a gift for Father’s Day can prove to be a bit of a challenge for many.

"We’re sure Isle of Wight fathers' would like nothing better than spending their special day with their off-spring — and a chance for kids to return the ‘dad’s taxi’ role.

“There are plenty of great places to visit here, and this is an excellent opportunity to leave the car at home, relax and take an adventure together."
