Rescued Stephen Jones' yacht found looted near Brisbane

A Welsh sailor rescued with his partner in the middle of the Pacific Ocean has found his boat has been ransacked after it turned up on an Australian beach.

Stephen Jones, 52, from Llandudno Junction, and his partner Tanya Davies, 43, were saved after the vessel overturned off Tonga in November.

Having drifted 3,700km (2,000 nautical miles) their boat Windigo was found on a beach south of Brisbane.

But they saw it had been looted when they arrived from New Zealand.
