WIGHTLINK  is warning Isle of Wight customers one of its car ferry routes will be impacted by a midweek crew shortage.

Due to the absence of an essential crew member, the cross-Solent operator’s service between Yarmouth and Lymington will be hit by timetable cancellations today (Wednesday, April 17).

The 3pm and 5pm sailings from Lymington and the 4.05pm and 6.05pm from Yarmouth were cancelled yesterday afternoon (Tuesday).

Wightlink told its customers: “We sincerely apologise for the inconvenience this action may cause."

All other Wightlink services between Fishbourne and Portsmouth Harbour and between Ryde Pier Head and Portsmouth Harbour are unaffected.
