A SOUTHERN Vectis bus has got stuck up St Catherine's Road, Niton, due to what its driver described as 'illegally parked cars'.

The 2.38pm Route 6, which serves Newport, Chale, Niton, Whitwell and Ventnor, among other places, cannot proceed until the vehicles are moved.

Southern Vectis Tweeted: "There are several illegally parked cars in St Catherine's Road (Buddle Loop), Niton.

"As a result, the 14:38 Route 6 Whitwell to Ventnor is currently stuck and unable to proceed. Apologies for any inconvenience caused by this."

The main attraction of the road for visitors is the popular Buddle Inn, although the road also leads to the beach.
