SEVERAL Red Jet sailings have been cancelled this morning.

Due to operational reasons, Red Funnel withdrew the 6.45am and 7.45am sailings from Southampton and the 7.15am and 8.15am sailings from Cowes.

It is unclear whether the service will resume this morning, but the ferry operator's service status is showing the next sailings as 8.45am from Southampton and 9.15am from Cowes.

The cancellations come on one of the busiest weekends of the year for the Isle of Wight, August bank holiday.

UPDATE 8.50am: Red Jets will now be on a one-boat service, departing Southampton at XX45 and Cowes at XX15.

UPDATE 12.25pm: Red Jet 16:15 and 17:15 from Southampton and 16:45 and 17:45 from Cowes cancelled due to operational reasons.
