Searches in the West Country and Solent

Brixham and Solent Coastguards are co-ordinating searches for two missing yachtsmen: one in the River Tamar the other in the River Medina.

A 63-year-old lone yachtsmen is missing from his boat Maid of Slapton in Cargreen on the Tamar and a 30-year-old yachtsman is sissing from his yacht moored at Medham Bay. His dinghy was found empty and drifting.

Coastguards are particularly concerned as UK waters are at their coldest at this time of year.
