    Fisherman missing after boat collision
    Scottish Viking and Homeland The Scottish Viking ferry collided with the prawn boat off the coast of St Abbs

    A fisherman is missing after his prawn boat, Homeland, collided with a ferry off the coast at St Abbs in Berwickshire.

    The accident, involving the ferry, Scottish Viking, which was travelling between Rosyth and Belgium, is reported to have happened just before 2000 BST.

    A rescue helicopter, lifeboats and 15 boats are involved in the search.

    Forth coastguard said the other member of the fishing boat's two-man crew was rescued from the water.

    Steve Higgins, Forth Coastguard watch manager, said: "We have requested the Eyemouth and Dunbar all-weather RNLI lifeboats and the Dunbar and St Abbs RNLI inshore lifeboats to launch and they are currently on scene and searching for the missing man.

    "The rescue helicopter from RAF Boulmer has been scrambled and is also on scene.

    "We have broadcast messages to all shipping requesting assistance and 15 other fishing vessels have joined the search. There are south-south westerly winds at five knots."

    An article on the BBC 1 one o'clock news just showed a photo of the Homeland - BH 120. Not sure which one it is now. I was told it was BCK 225.

    It was the Homeland BCK225 Martin. BBC news just saying that the MCA has called off the search for the missing man.

    Our thoughts go out to the family and friends of the young man who has been lost. He was just starting his life at sea which makes this all the more tragic.

    Rest in Peace
