Missing North Sea yachtsman appeal

Coastguards have put out an urgent appeal for a lone yachtsman missing in the North Sea to get in touch.

The Scarborough-based yacht, Equinox, left Kiel in northern Germany last week, heading for the UK.

The family of its skipper, a 69-year-old man from East Yorkshire who has not been named, last heard from him on 4 July.

An appeal to all vessels in the North Sea was put out before the shipping forecast on BBC Radio 4 on Friday morning.
