Service suspended on Wightlink between Lymington and Yarmouth due to fog.
An unexploded wartime bomb has been found at Portsmouth Harbour in Hampshire. It is believed the device dates back to World War Two. It was discovered yesterday afternoon, a few hundred metres away from the Portsmouth Historic Dockyard and the home of the Royal Navy.
The Royal Navy made arrangements to tow the device out to open water and detonate it in a controlled explosion this morning. In the meantime ferry and rail services in the area were disrupted for reasons of public safety.
A spokesperson from Wightlink ferries said the firm's scheduled sailings between Portsmouth and the Isle of Wight had been affected.
The port reopened at 6.30am, and services have started again, but passengers are warned that there may be delays.
The Wightlink car ferry service between Portsmouth and Fishbourne has been suspended until further notice after the linkspan collapsed at Gunwharf Terminal.
All sailings cancelled on Wightlink between Lymington and Yarmouth due to adverse weather conditions.
More than one thousand people have signed a petition to force the ferry company Wightlink to continue its night services to the Isle of Wight.
The island's residents believe losing the services wil damage the tourism industry. Wightlink says it is not halting the night crossings, however, but revising its timetable in "response to the challenges which the business faces in today's difficult economic climate".
Revised service on Wightlink between Portsmouth and Fishbourne, between Portsmouth and Ryde and between Lymington and Yarmouth due to the Isle of Wight festival.
