A diver is still missing off the coast of Great Yarmouth after overnight air and sea searches.

The missing man is a 68-year-old from the Brighton area who was diving on a wreck.

UK Coastguard was contacted at 6pm on bank holiday Monday by the dive boat Raider V reporting a missing male diver 12 miles east of Great Yarmouth.

A search was launched involving Coastguard rescue helicopters from Lydd and Humberside and RNLI lifeboats from Gorleston and Lowestoft along with the Caister Independent lifeboat.

The diver has not been found and the search continues on Tuesday morning.
