The Isle of Wight Floating Bride, between Cowes and East Cowes, will be off for part of the day tomorrow (Wednesday).

Partly due to absence, caused by Covid-19, and partly due to a decision to carry out what the Isle of Wight Council calls 'preventative maintenance', the chain ferry will not run between 8am and 8pm.

A replacement launch service will be in operation for foot passengers and cyclists.

Isle of Wight Council said: "We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause."
