FOG has led to disruption on cross-Solent services this morning (Wednesday).

Wightlink has suspended it's Yarmouth to Lymington Route and said there were delays on its Portsmouth to Fisbourne Route.

Its Fastcats have not been affected.

Red Funnel's high speed Red Jet, from Cowes, was experiencing delays of around 15 minutes.

Hovertravel is running a one craft shuttle service.

Wightlink said its next Yarmouth sailing was due to be at 9am.

At around 8.30am Red Funnel advised that it would be operating a shuttle service on its high speed passenger service from Cowes.

Looking at this report it seems all ferries, not just Wightlink, can be affected by fog.
