Search and rescue helicopters attending incident in English Channel

LONDON (Reuters) - Search and rescue helicopters are attending an incident involving a vessel off the south coast of England, Britain’s coastguard agency said on Sunday.

The lawmaker representing the Isle of Wight constituency closest to the vessel told Sky News he expected the incident to be handled by marine counter-terrorism forces, but that it was too early to call it a hijacking.
