Missing yacht: Families thank public and search teams

The families of four British men lost when their yacht, the Cheeki Rafiki, overturned while returning from Antigua, have thanked the public and search teams for their help.

The search for James Male, Paul Goslin, Andrew Bridge and Steve Warren was called off on Friday, after the upturned boat was found with the life raft still onboard.

Graham Male, father of James, said the discovery had brought them "unimaginable pain" but thanked the coast guard for searching "like it was one of their own family".
