Police making enquiries after yachtsman's disappearance
An extensive search for a missing yachtsman, whose boat was found drifting at Brighton marina, has now been suspended.
Sussex Police has named the yachtsman as Len King, 74, from Alfriston. and is now treating his disappearance as a missing person enquiry.
Talking of his disappearance his wife Stephanie said: "Len is an experienced yachtsman and has been sailing since he was at least 20. Normally we go together but during the week if its calm weather he may go off by himself. He went off just before lunch. I was expecting him home for dinner time. I phoned him several times but his phone was unable to connect so I thought he was on his way back. I called the person who has a boat next to us and he thought we were away. I can't understand what has happened. He is a very experienced yachtsman. He has all his equipment doubled up and is always careful. That is the way he runs things."
Insp Roy Apps said: "It is an anxious time for the family. The search is currently suspended and we are liaising with his family as we investigate the circumstances of his disappearance. An experienced seaman Mr King had left Brighton Marina on his yacht on Sunday afternoon and it is unclear as to what has happened to him. A friend reported him missing to the Coastguard at around 9.50pm last night as he had not returned home. His Sunseeker boat was then found unmanned near the harbour wall at Brighton Marina.
An extensive search was carried out by the Shoreham and Newhaven Coastguard Rescue teams, Shoreham, Newhaven and Brighton lifeboats along with the Coastguard helicopter from Lee-on Solent and this has now been suspended until new information comes to light."

Incident: Man drives wrong way down the A23
A man is being assessed by health workers after he drove the wrong way down the A23 towards Brighton for 8 miles.
The 73-year-old from Burgess Hill got onto the dual carriageway shortly before 10am after going in the wrong direction down a slip road at Hickstead. He then drove his silver BMW south along lane three of the northbound carriageway. Vehicles heading north had to take evasive action to avoid him.

Road policing unit officers intercepted the vehicle prior on the A23 to the north of the Mill Road roundabout in Brighton. The driver stopped his BMW after seeing the marked police vehicle travelling towards him slowly at the head of the traffic.
