Lucas Dobson: Search for six-year-old boy in River Stour

A specialist team searches a section of the River Stour for missing six-year-old Lucas Dobson, who fell into the river in Sandwich on Saturday afternoon. Lucas Dobson slipped into the River Stour in Sandwich, Kent, on Saturday afternoon, while on a fishing trip with family members. His aunt said Lucas's father jumped into the water after the child fell between a jetty and a boat but "the current was too strong, he had already gone". An army of public volunteers joined specialist search and rescue teams scouring river banks and waterways on Sunday morning after darkness halted rescue efforts after 10pm on Saturday.
