    A huge search is underway for four fisherman who failed to return to port today off Dover, UK. They have not been named.

    Conditions are said to be challenging.

    '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.'
