Baltic Ace shipwreck: North Sea search called off


Dutch coastguards have called off a search and rescue operation after the sinking of the Baltic Ace cargo ship in the North Sea.

A fifth body was found on Thursday and 13 people were rescued on Wednesday, but six more of the ship's 24-man crew remain missing following the collision with a container ship.

A spokesman said the chance of finding anyone alive was "virtually zero".
