A British couple who skipped bail after stealing a yacht have been found shot dead in a boat drifting off the coast of Senegal.

Peter Clarke, 49 and Sharon Arthurs-Chegini, a 46-year-old interior designer from Falmouth are believed to have been killed by pirates.

The pair fled abroad after being arrested for stealing a yacht from Mylor Harbour.
