A group of volunteers from Kent who helped stranded motorists on the island are holding an online auction to raise funds.

South East 4x4 Response sent four vehicles and five support staff down to the island on Saturday to help get vehicles out of the mud.

The volunteers describe the auction for “ souvenir mud “ collected on one of the vehicles as very tongue in cheek.

Delays expected due to Isle of Wight Festival traffic on A3054 in both directions between Victoria Road and A3021 Whippingham Road. There has been heavy rainfall making the camp site & car parks muddy.

The mud has led to difficulties getting vehicles into the car parks. Overnight vehicles have had to be towed onto site using tractors. Police ask drivers to prepare their vehicles for towing.
