Yarmouth Wightlink ferry cancellations caused traffic chaos in cross Solent travel

yarmouth wightlink ferry cancellations caused traffic chaos in cross solent travel

The cancellation of a Yarmouth to Lymington ferry has put Wightlink into meltdown this afternoon. Driver are being turned away from both Fishbourne and Yarmouth and non booked travellers are being advised that that the earliest travel time is Midnight from Fishbourne.

The meltdown comes after the failure of a mid morning service. Those effected passengers where transferred to the Fishbourne route that is already at capacity.
Many drivers attempting to gain access to an earlier sailing are being advised with a polite no. Those booked are being advised to arrive 45 mins before.

Wightlink have yet to comment on why the service was stripped.
