Missing yacht: Skipper's mother 'delighted' as search resumes

The US Coast Guard confirmed it had begun searching again for four British sailors missing in the Atlantic after an online petition gathered 200,000 signatures.

Cheeki Rafiki, the 40ft racing yacht, was sailing from a regatta in Antigua back to the UK when it got into difficulties. Contact with the men was lost on Friday.

Members of the sailors' families said they were relieved the search had resumed.

The BBC's Ben Moore reports from Frensham Sailing Club in Surrey, where friends and family of the yacht's skipper, Andrew Bridge, had gathered.
