A cargo ship bound for Runcorn that sunk with eight crew on board has been located on the seabed.
A major search effort was mounted on Saturday after the upturned hull of the Cypriot-registered Cemfjord was spotted in the waters of the Pentland Firth by a passing ferry. The search was suspended just after 4pm on Saturday after no trace was found of the crew members.
A sonar ship has now travelled to the area to search for the sunken ship and it is believed that the ship is upside down on the seabed.
It has emerged that the Cemfjord was involved in an incident last July when it was grounded off Denmark.
