A spokesman for the Maritime and Coastguard Agency has said there is a plant to re-float a cargo ship that has run aground off the Northumberland coast at high tide:
There was no-one injured and no pollution observed at this time.
The Maritime and Coastguard Agency have been in touch with all relevant parties to ensure that the owners of the vessel have a salvage plan in place for the refloating of the vessel at the next high tide, which is this evening.
Mark Rodaway from Portland Coastguard said: "We're determined to do absolutely everything we possibly can to attempt to get a successful outcome and locate these people (three fishermen missing off the Dorset coast) safe and well."
Fred Caygill of the Maritime and Coastguard Agency has said that the search for three missing fishermen off the Dorset coast is still underway. He told Sky News that electronic search aids were being used and that a helicopter would be scrambled very shortly.
