Missing yacht Cheeki Rafiki found with life raft

A capsized yacht belonging to four missing British sailors still contains the life raft it was hoped they had escaped on, the US Coast Guard has confirmed.

A US navy team found the Cheeki Rafiki on Friday and a swimmer confirmed that the cabin was flooded and all its windows were shattered.

American authorities have now ended their search for the men, with no reported sightings.

Duncan Kennedy reports.
