MAINTENANCE work on its fleet has led Red Funnel to cancel some of its vehicle ferries.

The route between East Cowes and Southampton is facing timetabling problems today (Wednesday), with the 8.15pm from Southampton and the 9.45pm from East Cowes (so far) affected.

Red Funnel said the cancellations from its timetable are due to "essential maintenance".

The company told customers: "We apologise for any inconvenience to your journey."
