Specialist search teams have been brought in to look for a Cumbrian man who has gone missing while on holiday in the Greek islands.
Roger Bainbridge, 67, from Kendal, was visiting his sister Maggie Cooper on the island of Paxos when he went missing.
Mr Bainbridge had taken a ferry to a nearby island of Antipaxos last Thursday, but when he didn't return for a family barbecue later that night they raised the alarm.
The Greek Embassy says that a 10-strong search team has been brought in from neighbouring Corfu.
A Greek Embassy Spokesman said:
"They are concentrating on the Antipaxos area. He went there and it is thought that is where he went missing. At this stage we don't know what happened to him and are focusing on finding him."
