A desperate search is under way to find a crew member missing from a tug boat which sank in the Thames this morning.
The Chiefton, believed to be owned by Gravesend-based company Palmer Marine Services Ltd, went under at Greenwich Pier at around 11am.
Rescuers found two members but a third remains missing.
It is not known if they are from the north Kent area.
The sinking comes just over a week after the death of 19-year-old Ben Woollacott, from Swanley, who fell overboard while working on the Woolwich Ferry on August 3.
