Coastguard Search of Isle of Wight called off
A sea and air search operation has been called off for a passenger reported to have fallen overboard from a cruise ship off the Isle of Wight on Saturday.
The man is understood to have entered the water from the Ventura as it was returning to Southampton, Hampshire, from a two-week trip to the Mediterranean.
A Coastguard helicopter and RNLI lifeboats were involved in searches of an area with a 25 nautical mile radius south of St Catherine's Point of the Isle of Wight since the early hours but the search was called off this afternoon.
The P&O ship, which can carry up to 3,200 passengers, had also retraced its route across the area to assist the search.
A Coastguard spokeswoman said: ``We are still broadcasting to all shipping to look out for anything in the water.''
Steven Fagioli posted on the ship's Facebook page: ``Late back, lost a passenger overboard last night. Search continuing with coastguards etc.''
A P&O Cruises spokesman said its arrival had been delayed and added: ``Following reports of a missing person earlier this morning, Ventura conducted a full search of the area off the coast of the Isle of Wight.''
An independent investigation is underway after the death of a man who had contact with Dorset Police.
Isle of Wight NHS Trust will be be placed into special measures after an inspection by the Care Quality Commission found "people were exposed to unacceptable risk of harm".
