People in East Yorkshire have been asked to help trace the next-of-kin of a man who died when a speedboat capsized off the Suffolk coast.

Peter Chambers, 43, of Wellesley Road in Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, died on 10 March after being found in the water near Lowestoft.

Police trying to trace his family believe he may have had connections to Driffield in East Yorkshire.

Anyone with information has been asked to contact Suffolk coroners.

The speedboat left Great Yarmouth harbour on 10 March and was later discovered overturned off Ness Point.

Attempts were made to revive Mr Chambers, but he was pronounced dead at the scene.

A post-mortem examination confirmed he had drowned.

Two men who were also thought to have been on the boat are still missing. They have been named locally as Andrew Porter and Malcolm Sayer.
