Emiliano Sala plane wreckage found in Channel

Wreckage from a plane carrying Cardiff City footballer Emiliano Sala has been been discovered in the English Channel.

The Piper Malibu N264DB was lost on 21 January on its way from Nantes, France to Cardiff, with the Argentine striker and pilot David Ibbotson on board.

David Mearns, who directed a privately-funded search operation on behalf of the Sala family, said the wreckage was located this morning off Guernsey.

The Air Accident Investigation Branch are at the site to recover the plane.
