Search mission to locate crew of sunken ship called off

  • A massive search operation to locate crew members of a cargo vessel that capsized near the northern Scottish coast was called off after it did not yield any results, according to media reports.

    The seven Polish and one Filipino crew members on board the Cemfjord are now presumed to be dead.

    According to the UK marine and coastguard agency, there was no trace of the Cemfjord crew after two days of extensive searching in the Pentland Firth that involved lifeboats, helicopters, and coastguard teams.
