                        A search has resumed of the shoreline at East Wemyss and the area where the boat was found
                   

               

One man has died and two others are missing after a small boat overturned in the Firth of Forth. 

Police said a man was recovered from the water about a mile out to sea from East Wemyss in Fife at about 17:00 on Monday.

The man, who has not been named, died in hospital a short time later.

The three anglers were reported missing after an afternoon of sailing amid concerns of worsening weather conditions.

The coastguard launched a search after it was alerted by someone on the shore.

One man was airlifted to Ninewells Hospital in Dundee but later died.

The boat involved, believed to be about 10ft long, was also recovered in the East Wemyss area.

Lifeboats from Anstruther and Kinghorn were involved in the search on Monday night, as well as the Rescue 131 RAF helicopter from Boulmer and three coastguard teams from Kinghorn, Leven and St Andrews.

                                                                                                   

Mark Rodaway, a national maritime operations manager with the Maritime and Coastguard Agency, told BBC Scotland three teams were taking part in a resumed coastline search and a further two RNLI lifeboats had put to sea to re-cover the area in daylight.

He said: "Half an hour into yesterday's search we located the overturned hull of the small fishing boat which gave us extremely good data on the position and 45 minutes after that we recovered the gentleman who, sadly, was subsequently declared deceased.

"So we know where to look. The search area itself remains quite tight and I have got an awful lot of assets to cover that."

Mr Rodaway said the weather was "moderate" at the time of the incident. He said there were fresh breezes but definitely not gale force.

Police said officers were in contact with the families of the missing men.
