Fishing crew missing after boat capsizes in English Channel

A search is continuing for two missing crew members of a fishing boat which capsized in the English Channel.

It overturned off the Kent coast on Tuesday night, the Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) said.

One person - spotted clinging to the upturned hull of the "Belgium-flagged" boat - was rescued and flown to hospital by helicopter.

Kaimes Beasley, from the Dover Coastguard, said there was "still hope" of finding the missing crew alive.
