Replica ship's return is delayed
The return of The Matthew to Bristol has been delayed because of poor weather conditions.

The replica of John Cabot's original ship which sailed the Atlantic, was due back from North Devon on Sunday to pick up two sets of passengers.

But two days of rough seas along her route means she is currently only at Portishead.

A spokesman said the vessel would be back at her usual berth, next to the ss Great Britain, on Sunday evening.
