Coastguards find owners of sunken yacht off Dorset

Coastguards have called off the search for the owners of a yacht discovered on the sea bed off Dorset after they were found on holiday in Tenerife.

A fishing vessel raised the alarm after getting the submerged yacht caught in its nets as it fished off Milford-on-Sea at about 17:30 GMT on Tuesday.

The yacht, called Nicola, went missing from Keyhaven in Hampshire some time between September and mid October.

It is not known how it came to be off Milford-on-Sea.
