The family of Blackpool man Glenn Thomas, who died when Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 crashed, have been told his body has been recovered and identified.
Mr Thomas, 49, a media officer at the World Health Organisation (WHO) in Geneva, was among 298 people killed when the Boeing 777-200 aircraft was downed over Ukraine on July 17.
