Portsmouth-Fishbourne hybrid ferry breaks down in Solent
A hybrid-powered car ferry has broken down in the Solent with more than 150 people on board.
Wightlink said Victoria of Wight suffered a "technical fault to its propulsion system" on its 08:00 GMT crossing from Fishbourne to Portsmouth.
The ferry arrived at Portsmouth commercial port under reduced power and accompanied by a tug shortly before 10:30.
The coastguard said Bembridge Lifeboat was sent as a precaution.
A Wightlink spokeswoman said 145 passengers and 13 crew had been on board and engineers would "assess the situation".
A number of scheduled crossings for the rest of Friday have been cancelled.
The £30m Victoria of Wight entered service in summer 2018 and can carry up to 178 cars and more than 1,000 passengers.
Powered by hybrid energy, the £30m ship was hailed as offering a "greener and more comfortable journey".
It uses a combination of batteries and diesel conventional engines, to be quieter and have lower emissions than similar vessels.
