The alarm was raised when a fishing boat which left the Docks in Galway city yesterday afternoon had not returned.

It is believed one man was on board at the time, a fisherman who is believed to have been checking on lobster pots.

Aran Lifeboat was dispatched to the area and recovered the boat last night but no-one was on board.

The Coastguard helicopter and lifeboat crews have resumed a search of the area this morning.
