A 50ft cabin cruiser has appeared to have sunk in Glasson Dock basin, according to eyewitnesses.

The boat, thought to be called the Kikboko and owned by a Glasson Dock man, is thought to have sunk overnight (December 26) in bad weather.

One eyewitness, who did not wish to be named, said that all he could see was the wheel house of the boat above the surface of the water.

Due to persistent high winds, a salvage operation has not yet been started.
