Body recovered from wreckage of Emiliano Sala plane

Emiliano Sala in action for Nantes

A body was spotted in underwater images of the wreckage and Britain's Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) has launched an operation to try and recover it.

The plane flying from Nantes, France to Cardiff on January 21 went missing with Sala and pilot David Ibbotson inside.

This comes just days after wreckage from the plane carrying Cardiff City footballer was discovered in the English Channel with a body which is yet recovered.

The body will be handed over to a coroner, and police are expected to provide a confirmed identity of the body after a full examination.

"The body is now being taken to Portland to be passed into the care of the Dorset Coroner".

It continued: 'Unfortunately, attempts to recover the aircraft wreckage were unsuccessful before poor weather conditions forced us to return the ROV to the ship.

'The weather forecast is poor for the foreseeable future and so the hard decision was taken to bring the overall operation to a close, ' the AAIB said.

Cardiff have withheld the first scheduled payment until they are satisfied with the documentation.

Sala was signed by Premier League side Cardiff City in January for a club record fee of £15million, before the Argentine striker and his pilot went missing.

After a series of phone calls from the French club, Cardiff received the first letter from Nantes' lawyers more than a week ago.

French top-flight club Nantes is demanding that Cardiff pay the sum of KSh 1.9 billion (£ 15m) transfer fee for Emiliano Sala.
