THOSE off to see the Flying Scotsman today faced long delays for a ferry.

Queues of around an hour were reported near the Sandbanks chain ferry as train spotters made the journey to Swanage.

The delays were undoubtedly worsened by today's clear skies and sunshine.

The Scotsman will be in Purbeck for three weeks. It will haul trains between Swanage, Corfe Castle and Norden until Wednesday.

There will be five round trips each day.
