Search for woman who 'went missing from ferry in English Channel'
A search is under way for a woman who went missing from a ferry in the English Channel.
The passenger was reported missing just after 1.30am when the Pride of Kent ferry was around six miles off the coast of Dover.
HM Coastguard said a "massive search" was launched after the ferry crew alerted Dover Coastguard to say they feared the woman had gone overboard.
In a statement the coastguard said a helicopter from Lee-on-Solent, RNLI lifeboats from Dungeness, Dover and Walmer, a lifeboat from Calais and a tug boat from the Port of Dover were all involved in the search.
