Police have today been using sonar to search part of the river, and this afternoon a tent was erected on the river bank. But an officer told ITV Meridian tonight that there was still no sign of the missing man.

Friends of Mr Lamb, who grew up in Whitstable and went to Canterbury High School, say it is extremely out of character for him not to have made contact and have set up a Facebook appeal for information.
