A search is continuing for two missing men following the death of a man when a speedboat capsized off the Suffolk coast.
Lifeboats and a helicopter searched the sea off Lowestoft after the man's body was found in the sea near Ness Point at about 14:00 GMT on Monday.
Two men from the Great Yarmouth area have since been reported as missing.
The sea search ended at 00:40 GMT but a shore search resumed later, said the Maritime and Coastguard Agency.
A number of men are believed to have set out by boat from Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, for a fishing trip on Monday morning.
The overturned speedboat was discovered in the sea close to a beach.
A Maritime and Coastguard Agency spokesman said: "Coastguard rescue teams from Lowestoft and Southwold will carry out a shoreline search this morning at low water. There are no plans to carry out a sea search."
Police are trying to trace the next of kin of the dead man.
Attempts were made to revive him, but he was pronounced dead at the scene.
