    'This afternoon Dover Coastguard was alerted to a missing fishing vessel which had been fishing in the Dover Strait. The vessel is known to have four crew on board.

    A Coastguard Rescue helicopter is searching an area in the South East of the Channel, two all-weather lifeboats from Dungeness and Dover are on scene and a French Search and Rescue helicopter has also been supporting the search effort.

    The Coastguard has notified other vessels in the surrounding area to remain vigilant and contact them if they locate anything.

    The weather conditions on scene are very challenging, with rough seas and gale force winds.'

    The search has had to be suspended because of bad weather. The crew aboard are thought to be Dutch, Belgian and Portuguese. Their families have been informed.

    Dutch, Portuguese English and French fishing and search vessels have 'saturated' the area but not a trace of the boat or crew has been found.
