Skipper describes debris seen in search for missing yacht

Debris has been found in the Atlantic near where the UK yacht Cheeki Rafiki disappeared.

The 40ft yacht was sailing back to the UK from a regatta in Antigua when it started taking on water last week.

Speaking via satellite telephone, Patrick Michel, skipper of the Malisi, one of the volunteer crews searching for the missing yacht, told BBC Breakfast a crew member had spotted a plank of wood and some white plastic.
