Portsmouth police have warned of delays for people hoping to travel to the Isle of Wight after a car deck collapsed on a ferry.
A spokesman said on Twitter: "Just liaised with Wightlinkferry (our side), there are delays for those wanting to travel tonight to the IOW due to the earlier incident."
A car deck fully loaded with vehicles has collapsed on a ferry on the Isle of Wight.
Four people have been taken to hospital after the incident at Wightlink's Fishbourne terminal, although none are believed to be in a life-threatening condition.
Paramedics, police and fire crews were called to the scene shortly before 10.30pm yesterday.
A photo obtained by OnTheWight news service showed a number of cars facing downwards on the collapsed deck.
The injured passengers were treated at St Mary's Hospital for a variety of injuries, but all were conscious and breathing, the Isle of Wight Ambulance Service said.
"It is very fortunate that it was only four people injured, all things considered," a spokesman added.
