Police divers have been called in to help the search for a missing County Durham man who was last seen at a riverside wedding reception.

Stephen Burn, 26, from Witton Gilbert, was at the evening reception at Durham Rowing Club on Saturday when he left after a row with his girlfriend.

Police divers started their search of the River Wear on Thursday.

Mr Burn, a keen Sunderland supporter, was last seen wearing a blue shirt, black trousers and black shoes.

A Durham Police spokesman said: "Stephen is a keen Sunderland fan, but did not turn up for their game on Sunday against Manchester City, which all his friends and family say is completely out of character.

"They are obviously extremely concerned for his welfare."
