Families 'convinced' missing yachtsmen still alive

An MP has told the BBC that the families of the four yachtsmen who are still missing in the Atlantic are "convinced" that they are still alive.

Caroline Nokes, MP for Romsey and Southampton North, said that the men were well-equipped and well-trained for this sort of eventuality.

The families of the British sailors, who have been missing since their yacht capsized, have appealed to the US coastguard to resume the search for them.
