Isle of Wight ferry sailings on Red Funnel's vehicle service, between East Cowes and Southampton, are delayed this morning (Saturday) and one service has been cancelled.

UPDATE: Isle of Wight ferry East Cowes to Southampton service suspended

The Isle of Wight County Press has been told Red Osprey has broken down at the Southampton berth and the 7.30am Red Eagle sailing is being held in East Cowes as a result.

Passengers say they have been told tugs are being called out to move Red Osprey and it is not known how long that will take.

Some remain on board, while others have left the boat at East Cowes.

Red Funnel says: "Due to a technical issue on the Red Osprey's Forward Voith Filter Unit, the 9am from East Cowes has been cancelled.

"Teams are working hard to fix the issue and we apologise for any inconvenience."

Update at 9.06am

A tug has now arrived alongside Red Osprey, to help manoeuvre the ferry out the Southampton berth.
