Rescue crews continue searching for 6-year-old Lucas Dobson, the boy who fell into the River Stour in Kent, UK, while on a fishing trip with family and friends on Saturday.

It is understood that the child was trying to step from a jetty on to a boat, but he fell in between the two. Three adults quickly jumped in to try to get him but strong currents swept Lucas away almost immediately.

Sonar equipment, drones, and search dogs are now being used to try and find the missing child.
