Hovertravel is telling its customers to "expect to see more passengers" as lockdown ends next week.

The Isle of Wight is one of only three places in the country to be in Tier One and visitor numbers are expected to rise.

In a letter, the operator said: "Stay vigilant by bringing and wearing your face covering correctly (over the mouth & nose) and give your fellow passengers extra space in queues, in terminals and when boarding and disembarking the craft."

It has published its timetable through into the start of January 2021.

It will also continue to work alongside Wightlink, by accepting the ferry firm's tickets after lockdown ends on December 2 and FastCats resumes on December 5.

The Wightlink foot passenger ferries will run outside commuter times, between 07:15 (from Portmsouth) and 07:47 (from Ryde) until 16:15 (from Postmouth) and 16:47 (from Ryde).

Ticket acceptance includes free use of the Portsmouth Hover Bus.

In the event of weather disruption, Hovertravel customers will be able to use their tickets on Wightlink services, until January 31.
