THE Tilbury to Gravesend ferry service has suffered disruption today, with several crossings cancelled.
While work is being carried out on the jetty at Tilbury, a replacement boat which is able to moor at a different point is being used, but today the crew reported the Jacob Marley had problems when they arrived this morning.
There was a short belay but peak times services did take place.
However, at around 11am Jetstream, who operate the ferry, said the boat would be taken out of service for a ‘slight mechanical repair’. At 12.30pm they reported repairs were expected to take around 90 minutes.
At 2.40pm it was announced the service would resume shortly after 3pm.
