Wightlink is to further reduce its sailings between Lymington and Yarmouth.

The route will now run on weekdays only - with weekend sailings cancelled.

The firm is blaming a drop in demand, saying the latest lockdown is having a 'significant' impact.

The operator said: "The Government’s latest travel restrictions during the Covid-19 pandemic mean very few people are using this route on Saturdays and Sundays, as only essential travel is now allowed.

Weekday sailings will continue on the same timetable and will be kept under review.

Meanwhile, a two-hourly timetable will continue to link Portsmouth and Fishbourne, carrying freight and essential travellers and the Wightlink Fastcats service is completely suspended.
