This year's Fairlee Fireworks event - scheduled to take place tomorrow (Sunday December 10) - has been cancelled.
A statement from Mountbatten - hosting the event alongside Isle of Wight Festival and IW Radio - said the following:
"We are very sad to let you know we've had to cancel tomorrow's event on safety grounds.
"Our planning team have advised us that the forecasted gusty winds on site mean it isn't safe to go ahead.
"We are so sorry to have to do this, it's very disappointing for all involved.
"As you can imagine, a lot of the costs for this event have already been paid, meaning Mountbatten will lose a substantial amount of income from its cancellation.
"We would therefore ask that you consider donating your ticket fee if you are able.
"If you are not, please contact us at [email protected]
"Thank you so much for your support and so sorry to share this disappointing news."
