A minute's silence was observed today as church congregations in Dorset gave prayer to the three-man crew of a sunken fishing boat. The wreck of the Purbeck Isle was discovered yesterday, lying 10 miles off the coast of Portland. The boat had been missing since Thursday.
Family and friends of three fishermen who died when their vessel sank off the Dorset coast will set sail to the site of the wreck.
