Red Jets between Southampton and Cowes are hit by cancellations this afternoon.

The 2.15pm from Cowes, the 2.55pm from Southampton and the 3.35 from Cowes are all off, the firm said on Twitter.

Passengers say they were told it was down to a water leak.

Red Funnel has apologised for the inconvenience.

Its car ferries are already running a reduced service today, due to measures to protect busy weekends because of Covid-19 isolations and unfilled vacancies.

Red Jets are expected to run at 4pm from Southampton and 4.55pm from Cowes.

Passengers are being offered vehicle ferry sailings to East Cowes instead.
