Weymouth Bay missing diver search called off

A sea search has been called off for a diver who went missing off the Dorset coast.

The 45-year-old became separated from her "buddy" while they were looking for scallops in Weymouth Bay on Saturday.

The woman, from Surrey, had been diving from a local boat on the Adamant Shoal, near Lulworth Banks, when she failed to return to the surface.

The case is being investigated by Dorset Police as a missing person inquiry.

HM Coastguard helicopters and a number of boats were involved in the immediate search on Saturday, which continued until Sunday evening.
