A missing yachtsman has been found in the Irish Sea, six miles west of the Isle of Man

Coastguards were alerted earlier after he failed to arrive in Ardglass, Co Down.

The man called his brother to say he had encountered bad weather after leaving the Isle of Man.

There was no further contact for several hours, raising fears about his safety. But the alert ended after his 28 ft yacht was spotted in the Irish Sea.

The yachtsman said he was safe and well.
