A search operation is underway after a fishing trawler sank off the coast of north Dublin this afternoon.
The search effort is ongoing involving the coastguard and the RNLI. Coastguard Helicopter Rescue 116, LE Niamh and LE Orla, along with a number of smaller vessels in the area are participating in the search.
Local RNLI lifeboat crews were tasked to the scene after the vessel went down about 100m off Skerries harbour.
A spokesman for Howth RNLI said its crew were alerted to the sinking before 2pm.
Local reports indicate that one person has been recovered and the search is continuing for a second.
More to follow.
