Red Funnel says it is investigating a problem that is causing IT issues today (Monday).

The cross-Solent ferry firm says online bookings, telephone bookings, customer account enquiries and NPR (number plate recognition), at check-in, are not available.

In a statement, it said: "We ask that all customers with existing bookings for travel with us today to please have their e-tickets available to be checked on arrival.
“Customers who wish to travel today, but do not currently have an existing booking, can
purchase Day Return and Single tickets from the East Cowes and Southampton Vehicle Ferry ticket offices.

"Foot passenger tickets for the Vehicle Ferries can also be purchased from the ticket machines at both terminals as normal.

“We are currently in the process of investigating the issues and hope to have all systems back online soon.

"In the meantime, we apologise for any inconvenience caused to affected customers."
