Search for two missing sailors in the Straits of Gibraltar

A plane, helicopter and the tugboat ‘Luz de mar’ are searching in the Straits of Gibraltar for the two crew members whose boat capsized last night.

At around 02:00 the authorities received a call to say that two people had fallen overboard from their semi-dirigible when it capsized at an unspecified point somewhere between Punta Europa in Gibraltar and the enclave of Ceuta.

The search effort has been hampered by rough seas in the area.
