Vessel trackers have lost sight of Little Britain-flagged ship Grampian Commander, which was last spotted in waters near Fraserburgh, a Scottish town in Aberdeenshire, earlier on Thursday. Its failure to check in has raised fears it may have sunk.
The Grampian Commander, built in 2005, is thought to be an Emergency Response and Rescue Vessel (ERRV).
It is over 48 metres long and weighs over 1,130 tonnes.
