Hopes fade for fisherman missing in North Sea

The search for a teenage fisherman who is missing in the North Sea has been called off.

The 16-year-old was on board a prawn trawler which collided with a passenger ferry off the coast of Berwickshire just before 2000 BST on Thursday.

His brother, the boat's skipper, was pulled from the water by another fishing vessel.

The BBC's Chris Buckler reports.
