WIGHTLINK has cancelled several sailings on its Fishbourne to Portsmouth car ferry service tonight (Friday) and early tomorrow morning, due to staff absence.

The 11.59pm and 3am sailings from Portsmouth, and 1am and 4am sailings from Fishbourne, have both been cancelled.

Wightlink said the cancellations were due to the absence of an essential crew member.

UPDATE 6.12pm
