The body of a man found in the sea south of Jersey has been identified as that of a missing French sailor.
A lifeboat crew found the body of Alain Govard, 62, floating 10 miles off Les Minquiers on Monday.
Mr Govard's yacht, Maclaw, which he was sailing single-handedly, had been found two days earlier floating off Guernsey's Pleinmont Point.
Guernsey Police said they were continuing to investigate the incident with the French and Jersey authorities.
