Lifeboats have today resumed the search for two people feared missing after their boat overturned off Lowestoft yesterday afternoon

A man has died and two

others are feared missing after a speedboat overturned in the sea near Ness

Point, Lowestoft.

Search and rescue

crews are continuing their efforts today after a man and an overturned boat

were spotted in the sea at around 2pm yesterday.

A man’s body was

pulled from the water shortly after the report but he was pronounced dead at

3pm.

Two other people are

still believed to be missing.

A Suffolk constabulary spokesman said: “The

police helicopter and an RAF search and rescue helicopter have been used to

carry out searches of the water to assist the coastguard and see if anyone else

could be spotted but there have been no further sightings.”

The white 18ft

speedboat was recovered last night following searches of the coastline and

brought ashore around 7pm.

Debris from the boat

was also discovered, including two buoyancy aids, a seat and other equipment.

Waveney MP Peter Aldous told EveningNews24:

“This is a tragic event and my thoughts are very much with the family and

friends of those involved. It is also important to recognise the efforts of all

the emergency services who have attended this incident.” 

RNLI lifeboats and a

RAF helicopter will continue looking for the missing crew today.
