Missing UK yachtsmen: Andrew Bridge's father 'coping'

The father of the skipper of a yacht which capsized in the Atlantic Ocean has said the family is coping "as best we can" with their son's disappearance.

Contact with Andrew Bridge and his three fellow yachtsmen was lost on Friday but his father David told BBC Surrey's James Cannon he wanted the US coastguard to resume their search after it was called off.

"The weather has improved so they should restart their search. We all think they're in the life raft... One personal beacon was set off, and when that died they set another personal beacon off, which would suggest they were somewhere safe enough to able able to do so."
