Ten-mile sea hunt for miss­ing fish­ing boat

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk&world Update -

A FISH­ING boat and its three-man crew re­mained miss­ing yes­ter­day, as coast­guards con­tin­ued to search off the Dorset coast. The Wey­mouth-based boat, named the Purbeck Isle, had not been seen since leav­ing port onthurs­day morn­ing. Coast­guards launched a search af­ter it was re­ported miss­ing at around 6pm that day. A spokes­woman for the the Mar­itime and Coast­guard Agency said the fish­ing boat is 11m long and used as a “pot­ter”, to catch pos­si­bly lob­ster or crab us­ing pots. “I un­der­stand that it looks like an ex­trav­a­gance but I think if they recog­nised the way a lot of that money has been spent, it has made quite a con­struc­tive im­pact on peo­ple’s lives” - The Princess Royal on the cost of the Olympic Games. “This is not the nanny state, it’s the sen­si­ble state. It is lu­di­crous that we should ex­pect peo­ple to train for hours to drive a car or use a com­puter, but when it comes to look­ing af­ter a baby, we tell peo­ple to just get on with it” - The Prime Min­is­ter. “The trick is to just keep flan­nelling un­til you can re­mem­ber what you were talk­ing about in the first place” - Co­me­dian Billy Con­nolly ex­plains how he per­forms. “In London, I am per­fectly fine, un­less I have a trail of par­a­sites be­hind me. But I’m good at evad­ing those lit­tle twits” - Snow White ac­tress Kris­ten Ste­wart on the pa­parazzi. “I cry ev­ery week. When I saw the Amer­i­can ver­sion and saw peo­ple cry­ing I thought ‘That can’t be real’ but it is! The worst part is you can’t keep them all. There have been some great singers but they can’t all win. It’s hard de­cid­ing who stays and who goes” - Sir Tom Jones ad­mits to shed­ding tears on The Voice. James Fox, ac­tor, 73; Pete­town­shend, gui­tarist and singer (The Who), 67; Grace Jones, model, singer and ac­tress, 64; Vic­to­ria Wood, come­di­enne, writer and ac­tress, 59; Jodi Pi­coult, au­thor, 46; Lily Cole, model and ac­tress, 24.
