HM Coastguard continues to coordinate the search after a United States military aircraft from RAF Lakenheath went into the sea 74NM off Flamborough Head, Yorkshire, earlier today.

Humberside based HM Coastguard helicopter is working with other aircraft in the area, and the RNLI lifeboats from Bridlington and Scarborough continue to assist with the search along with other vessels.

The search is ongoing and we have no further information.
