More than two dozen crew members are missing from a ship which snapped in half after being hit by a tropical storm.

Workers were forced to abandon the industrial vessel which sank after Typhoon Chaba unleashed perilous conditions in the South China Sea, hampering rescue efforts.

Dramatic aerial footage showed people being hoisted into a helicopter by emergency crews, with at least three of the 30-strong crew brought to safety around 5.30pm local time on Saturday (around 10.30am GMT).

The disaster happened around 300km (186 miles) south of Hong Kong.
