Lifeboat and helicopter search off Lowestoft Coast.

Police are continuing their attempts to trace relatives of a 43-year-old man whose body was pulled from the North Sea near Lowestoft last week.

Paul Chambers, of Wellesley Road in Great Yarmouth, drowned on Monday, March 10, after a boat he was on capsized.

Since then police have been working to trace his next-of-kin and, following a media appeal last week, officers have received information that Mr Chambers may have connections to Driffield in Yorkshire.

Now they are asking people in the area if they can help trace Mr Chambers relatives.

Anyone who may have knowledge of any family members is asked to contact Steve Bignell, coroners officer, on 01986 835167.
