ferry services are returning to normal after the chaos caused by the Isle of Wight Festival and the inclement weather accompanying it.
Festival goers had endured traffic problems caused by tailbacks on the island, as muddy conditions at the festival venue made parking difficult.
This had prevented Wightlink ferries from being able to let people and cars disembark and the end of the festival has seen huge queues as people have struggled to get away and return to the mainland.
Earlier today (June 25th), Wightlink revealed on its Facebook page that traffic at Fishbourne was having to wait half an hour, while at Yarmouth it was an hour and Ryde passengers were only delayed by 20 minutes.
However, this eased as sailings continued to take place on time and by late afternoon the company stated: "We are taking standby traffic again at our Fishbourne terminal. There are no queues at any of our Island terminals."
The festival was enjoyed by thousands of music fans who were entertained by the likes of Madness, Pearl Jam and Jessie J.
