Debris found on a beach in Mozambique is consistent with where ocean drift models predicted parts of the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 may end up, according to Australia's transport chief.
Flight MH370 disappeared between Kuala Lumpur to Beijing in March 2014, with 239 people on board.
In a statement, Minister for Transport Darren Chester said: "The location of the debris is consistent with drift modeling commissioned by the Australian Transport Safety Bureau and reaffirms the search area for MH370 in the southern Indian Ocean."
It comes after the metre-long piece of metal was confirmed by US officials as having come from the same type of plane as MH370.
The piece will now be sent to Australia for examination by Australian and Malaysian officials.
