A Channel Islands freight vessel taken out of service due to a propeller problem has returned to service.

The MV Arrow developed problems on Tuesday, but following repairs to its propeller control system loaded freight in Portsmouth for the islands.

It is covering the Channel Islands-UK route due to the Commodore Clipper being out of service after hitting the seabed in July.

The Clipper is currently being repaired in dry dock in Falmouth.
