The Floating Bridge remains off today (Wednesday), five days after the service was suspended due to an oil leak.

The chain ferry between Cowes and East Cowes went off suddenly on Friday.

Isle of Wight Council said: "Unfortunately we have no option but to suspend the Cowes floating bridge while engineers investigate an hydraulic oil leak.

"We have arranged for a replacement foot passenger launch to operate and will work closely with our contractors to resume the service as quickly as possible.

"We wish to apologise for any inconvenience caused."
