The Coastguard have called off their search for a missing diver off the Norfolk coast.
HM Coastguard said there was still no sign of the diver who was looking at a wreck site in the North Sea.
A helicopter joined the search for the 68-year-old man from the Brighton area who was reported missing by the dive boat Raider V at 6.30pm on Monday.
A spokesman for HM Coastguard confirmed they called off their search at 7.30am today after an overnight air and sea search.
A search was launched involving Coastguard rescue helicopters from Lydd and Humberside as well as RNLI lifeboats from Gorleston and Lowestoft along with the Caister Independent lifeboat.
The diving vessel remains in the area and the coastguard are still putting out mayday calls to other ships in the area.
