Hampshire County Council is to take over the running of public health services on the Isle of Wight.

The authority will deliver services including drug and substance misuse services, mental wellbeing support and sexual health assistance from next month, the Local Democracy Reporting Service said.

The move, which has been requested by Isle of Wight Council, will not save any money but is aimed at ensuring the "best possible outcomes" for residents.
