Latest on Emiliano Sala plane search: the body removal is underway

Air Accidents Investigation Branch have confirmed the removal of body inside the plane wreckage is underway, as it was stopped due to poor weather conditions.

An AAIB spokesperson said: “We are attempting to recovery the body. If we are successful, we will consider the feasibility of recovering the aircraft wreckage.

“Strong tidal conditions mean we can only use the remotely operated vehicle (ROV) for limited periods each day and this will mean that progress is slow.

“Regardless of the results, we will not be making a further statement until the families have been informed.”

Emiliano Sala’s plane disappeared during the flight from Nantes to Cardiff on January 21. No official statement will be made on the body, until it has been removed from the wreckage.
