Channel fishing boat rescue

One man has been rescued, a second has died and a third is missing after a fishing boat capsized in the English Channel.

The Belgium-flagged vessel overturned off the Kent coast at about 23:00 GMT on Tuesday, the BBC understands.

One person - spotted clinging to the upturned hull of the boat - was rescued at 07:30 GMT the next day.

A second man was rescued from the sea later in the day, but died in hospital, the Maritime and Coastguard Agency said.

The third crewman remains unaccounted for. An extensive search has been suspended.
