Red Funnel has confirmed another day of Isle of Wight ferry disruption and cancellations for Friday (December 29).

The cross-Solent travel operator has announced another batch of scheduled vehicle ferry sailings will only operate as freight-only services.

The 5.15am, 8.15am and 11.15am sailings from Southampton and the 6.45am, 9.45am and 12.45pm from East Cowes will not be available to passengers, Red Funnel said.

Meanwhile, later in the day, the 2.15pm crossing from Southampton and the 3.45pm from East Cowes have been cancelled.

This is due to ‘ongoing maintenance on the Red Falcon,’ the ferry operator confirmed.

A spokesperson said: “We apologise for any inconvenience to your journey.”
