A British woman is feared to have fallen overboard from a cruise ship in the Atlantic.
The 70-year-old passenger, who has not been named, was reported missing by her travelling companion on Sunday as the Saga Sapphire, which left Southampton last Monday, was travelling towards Barbados.
Saga said: ‘Following a comprehensive search of the ship, she could not be found. Working in conjunction with maritime authorities, the Saga Sapphire has turned round to conduct a search.
‘Our heartfelt thoughts are with the family and travelling companion at this difficult time. We are providing support for her travelling companion on board and for relatives in the UK.’
The 600-passenger Sapphire is on a 34-night cruise to the Caribbean.
