Breakdown leads to Red Funnel ferry delays
Passengers on the Red Funnel car ferry have been warned of delays after one of its vessels broke down.
Red Funnel said a normal service should resume by Wednesday afternoon between Southampton and East Cowes, Isle of Wight.
Passengers faced delays of five-and-a-half hours on Monday evening after a backlog of vehicles built up waiting to board revised ferry services.
The ferry is awaiting new parts, the company added.
A revised timetable will run until it is fixed.
Foot passengers have been advised to travel on the Southampton-West Cowes high-speed service.
Red Funnel apologised and said in a statement: “Everything possible is being done to reduce the delays as much as possible.”
