Missing Cruise Ship Man: Search Called Off
The search for a man, who's gone missing from a cruise ship heading to Southampton, has been called off.
It's thought he fell overboard off the Isle of Wight, and he was reported missing on Tuesday morning (24 September).
A search was carried out to the south east of St Catherine’s involving the coastguard helicopter and a lifeboat, while other boats in the area were asked to help look for the man.
A statement by the Maritime and Coastguard Agency said:
"The search for a man missing from a cruise liner heading into Southampton has now been stood down.
"Solent Coastguard received a call just before 6am today reporting the incident.
"The Coastguard search and rescue helicopters from Lee-on-Solent and Portland along with the Bembridge RNLI lifeboat and the Selsey RNLI lifeboat carried out a search off the Isle of Wight, south east of St Catherine's. Vessels in the area were also asked to keep a lookout, and a number of them also joined in with the search.
"Despite a thorough search, nothing was found. Rescue units have now been stood down."
A bomb disposal team was called to Gillam Road in Kinson after household items were set alight outside.
Tens of thousands of people lined the harbour to welcome HMS Queen Elizabeth to her home port for the first time.
Lanes will be added on Junction 9 slip roads, the Parkway South roundabout and Whiteley Way approach.
