WORK to repair Ryde Harbour after storm damage in February has been completed.

Isle of Wight Council said nine berths, closed for safety reasons, had been brought back into use.

The work, which included reinforcing the breakwater with rocks and concrete, was carried out by Island firm Imphouse at a cost of £29,000.

Isle of Wight Council executive member for tourism and economy Shirley Smart said: "We really do recognise the importance of the harbour to Ryde and were keen to see the repairs undertaken as soon as possible.

"I am really grateful to everyone that has worked so hard to get the works completed in a good and timely fashion so that the harbour can play a full part in supporting the economy of Ryde.

"It is pleasing that we have been able to commission a local firm to carry out the repairs ahead of the busy summer sailing season, especially considering it was a very specialist repair job."
