Two fishermen have been found dead on a boat in Whitby harbour.

Concerns were raised about the pair and the men's bodies were discovered in a vessel moored off Pier Road at 09:55 GMT on Wednesday.

A spokesman for North Yorkshire Police said their deaths were "unexplained but not suspicious".

The Health and Safety Executive and the Marine Accident Investigation Branch had been informed of the men's deaths, he added.

The two have yet to be formally identified, police said.
