The Isle of Wight Council votes today on whether to hold a referendum on independence for the island, BBC Radio Four's Today programme reported this morning.

The council's Liberal Democrat leader Morris Barton argues that the island would gain inward investment if it became a tax haven like the Channel Islands.

The council will also vote on whether there should be a bridge or tunnel linking the Isle of Wight to the mainland, Today reported.
