ANOTHER popular Isle of Wight event has been scrapped due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Mountbatten's Santa Dash, scheduled for December 13, will no longer go ahead.

A statement from the charity said: "It will come as no surprise that we have now officially cancelled this year's Santa Dash.

"The current lockdown and ongoing uncertainty with Covid-19 means we must now look to next year, in the hope we can make Santa Dash 2021 bigger and better than ever.
