THE Cowes floating bridge ran aground on spring tides at East Cowes this afternoon (Monday).

The Isle of Wight Council said it was not expected to be refloated until this evening and a launch was being arranged to provide a back-up passenger service in the interim.

Vehicles were advised to divert via Newport until the service resumed.
