Two bodies have been recovered by rescue teams searching for a Belgian trawler missing since Wednesday in the English Channel.

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."
