More than 100 people turned out despite high winds to protest against Isle of Wight ferry firm Wightlink today (Saturday).
She said: “Islanders have had enough. The cost of ferry fares is astronomical – and this is hitting residents hard who need to travel for work, to see family or to get vital medical treatment.
“Our ferry services are essential public services – not cash cows for international corporations.
“We demand that Wightlink provide residents with fairer fares. And that the government urgently enforce a Public Service Obligation on our ferry companies, so that we can afford to use them.”
