Seven sailors missing in the icy North Sea after a cargo ship collided with another vessel and sank off the Dutch coast are almost certainly dead, rescuers said today.
A massive air and sea rescue operation involving several helicopters, two navy patrol ships and even one of the ships involved in yesterday's collision, which killed four cargo ship crew members, was called off at about 2am.
Coastguard chiefs said they would decide at daylight whether to continue the search.
