MONDAY, OCTOBER 29: The tall ship HMS Bounty has sunk off the coast of America and two crew are still missing.

The tall ship last visited Bermuda in June 2009 for the Tall Ship's Atlantic Challenge, but did not take part in the event.

HMS Bounty is a replica of the ship of the same name famous for the mutiny of its crew in the 18th Century.

The ship was built for the 1962 film Mutiny on the Bounty.

It was on its way from Connecticut on the north-east coast of the US to Florida when it began taking on water on Sunday night.

The search for the two missing crew is still ongoing.
