A major air and sea rescue operation has been stood down after reports that two people went overboard from a Stena Britannica ferry off the Essex coast this morning.
The Coastguard says they had a call just before 10am this morning from a witness saying they'd seen two people go overboard.
RNLI lifeboats were involved in the search, along with a number of other vessels including fishing and tug boats.
The RAF search and rescue helicopter from Wattisham was also used. A search was carried out along the shoreline as well.
The Coastguard is satisfied that it has carried out a full search and unless new information comes out, the units have been stood down.
