Yacht families 'positive' after Foreign Office meeting

The families of four British sailors missing in the Atlantic say they are staying positive that their loved ones will be found alive.

The 40ft Cheeki Rafiki, based in Southampton, was sailing back to the UK from an Antigua regatta when it communicated that it had started taking on water last week.

Speaking after a meeting at the Foreign Office, relatives said they felt everything possible was being done to find the men.

The four missing crew members are Paul Goslin, 56, from West Camel, Somerset; skipper Andrew Bridge, 22, from Farnham; Steve Warren, 52, from Bridgwater; and 22-year-old James Male, from Romsey.
