Services on Woolwich Ferry were suspended today (August 6) after an unknown "technical fault" was reported.

The Ferry links Woolwich and North Woolwich, and carries pedestrians, cyclists, cars, vans and lorries across the river for free.

As such, severe disruption for those who use the service, which typically runs from 6.10am to 8pm, was reported following the suspension.

"Woolwich Ferry - The service is currently suspended due to technical issues with the on-board generators. Please seek alternative routes," a spokesperson for Transport for London (TfL) said Tuesday morning.

The free-to-use boat service typically runs once every 15-20 minutes during the week.
