Missing sailor's father 'can't believe search called off so early'

Speaking exclusively to ITV Meridian, the father of a missing sailor from Southampton has said he 'can't believe the search has been called off so soon'.

Graham Male's son James, 23, is on board the yacht 'Cheeki Rafiki', which has gone missing in the mid-Atlantic. The US Coastguard called off a search yesterday.

James is one of four men who were sailing the Southampton-based boat home, after taking part in the Antigua Sailing Week regatta.
