An international search and rescue operation is underway after a passenger jet disappeared over the South China Sea early this morning.
ITV News Reporter Ben Chapman has the latest:
Chinese Prime Minister Li Keqiang urged Malaysia to "quickly and vigorously push search and rescue work for missing Malaysian aircraft," state news agency reported.
Malaysia Airlines said at least 152 of the 227 passengers on missing Malaysia Airlines flight were Chinese.
Chinese state media and the relatives of passengers onboard the flight criticised the carrier's poor response.
The BBC has responded to calls for licence fee avoidance to be decriminalised, warning that removing the threat of prosecution could eventually lead to further cuts to programming.
A BBC spokesman said legislation was "a matter for the Government", but added that any change in the law could lead to more people evading the yearly charge, currently set at £145.50.
"Just a one per cent increase in evasion would lead to the loss of around £35 million, the equivalent of around 10 BBC Local Radio stations," the spokesman added.
Chinese relatives of passengers on a Malaysia Airlines flight missing between Kuala Lumpur and Beijing accused the airline of keeping them in the dark, while state media criticised the carrier's poor response.
Relatives were taken to a hotel near Beijing airport, put in a room and told to wait for information from the airline, but none came.
Malaysia Airlines said at least 152 of the 227 passengers on flight were Chinese."There's no one from the company here, we can't find a single person. They've just shut us in this room and told us to wait," said one man.
About 20 people stormed out of the room at one point, enraged they had been given no information.
The mother of murdered teenager Stephen Lawrence has demanded the Metropolitan police chief take "decisive action" after a damning report found officers had spied on her family.
Baroness Lawrence has urged Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe to co-operate fully with the judicial inquiry ordered by the Home Secretary following the Ellison review's "devastating" revelations, in a letter seen by the BBC.
A report by barrister Mark Ellison QC published this week found that one of the officers on the original investigation into Stephen's death, detective sergeant John Davidson, may have acted corruptly.
It was claimed that Davidson had admitted having a "corrupt connection" with Clifford Norris, the gangland boss father of David Norris, who was finally convicted of Stephen's murder in 2012.
There were no reports of bad weather in the path of the missing Malaysian Airlines plane. The Weather Channel said there were clear skies and no turbulence along the flight's route.
The Ukraine crisis should prompt a rethink about defence cuts, the head of NATO said.
Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said the Crimea stand-off showed insecurity was "much more expensive."
"Recent events in Crimea remind us that there is still a threat in Europe, a potential threat against security and stability," he told BBC Radio 4's Today.
"It is a reminder that European nations should invest sufficiently in our common defence and security.
"Obviously, defence comes at a cost but insecurity is much more expensive.
Jade Etherington and her guide Caroline Powell crowned their first season racing together by winning Great Britain's first Paralympic medal on snow in 20 years in Sochi.
Etherington, who celebrates her 23rd birthday on Sunday, is visually impaired and communicates with Powell down the course via radio.
