A search has resumed for four people who went missing while diving off the coast of Malaysia yesterday.

The group includes a British man and a teenager.

The 14-year-old boy and 46-year-old man were taking part in a training exercise off Pulau Tokong Sanggol, nine miles from the coastal town of Mersing.

Also missing are an 18-year-old French woman and a 35-year-old woman from Norway.

Malaysia’s Maritime Enforcement Agency launched a search yesterday, two hours after the group failed to return to their dive boat.

The search, which took place in rough weather, was called off last night but resumed this morning.

The UK’s Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office is in contact with the resort the Britons are staying at and has offered consular assistance.
