The wife of a missing yachtsman has said she "can't understand" what has happened to him after his boat was found drifting by the wall of Brighton Marina.

Len King, 74, from Alfriston, East Sussex, was reported missing on Sunday night after he failed to return home from a sailing trip on his 70ft Sunseeker yacht.

His wife Stephanie described him as an experienced yachtsman.

Sussex Police said a huge search and rescue operation had now been turned into a missing person inquiry.
