Two bodies have been recovered by rescue teams searching for a Belgian trawler missing since Wednesday in the English Channel.
The RNLI confirmed the discovery after lifeboat crews were sent to investigate debris spotted by an aircraft on the French side of the Channel north-west of Boulogne.
The fishing boat was reported missing with four people on board after it disappeared yesterday afternoon in the Dover Strait. The RNLI has called off the search for a second night after darkness fell on one of the busiest shipping lanes in the world.
"We are aware that two bodies have been recovered," a RNLI spokesman said. "However, this is still an ongoing and sensitive operation."
The Coastguard has said that a major air-sea search in the Channel for a fishing boat with four crew members on board has been suspended with nothing found.
Lifeboat and helicopter crews were stood down early this morning following a thorough search for the vessel which vanished in rough seas and gale-force winds.
The Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) said the fishing crew members were non-UK nationals but was unable to disclose further details about their boat.
A spokesperson for the Dover Coastguard has confirmed to ITV News that four people on board a fishing boat missing in the Channel are not believed to be British.
The Dover coastguard has launched a search for an overdue fishing boat with four crew members on board.
In a statement, the Martime and Coastguard Agency said that the Dover coastguard was alerted this afternoon when a boat that had been fishing in the Dover Straight failed to return to port.
A rescue helicopter and the RNLI all-weather lifeboats from Dover and Dungeness are taking part in the search operation.
The weather in the Dover Straight is said to be "challenging", with high winds and rough seas hindering search efforts.
Rescue teams have launched a search for a fishing vessel, which had four crew on board, that has gone missing in the south east of the English Channel, according to the Maritime and Coastguard Agency.
A sailor was rescued 11 hours after issuing a mayday call as his yacht was battered and dismasted by strong winds.
The call for help first went out at 4.50pm yesterday with the Maritime and Coastal Agency getting reports of a trimaran vessel at risk of capsizing.
British navy vessel HMS St Albans located the yacht 18 miles south of Portland, off the coast of Weymouth, just before 4am.
The sailor was thought to be the only person on board and was rescued by the RNLI lifeboat from Weymouth.
It followed a full-scale air and sea search including coastguard rescue helicopters.
