Mr Dalziel, 43, is understood to be South African but was travelling on a British passport. He is believed to have moved to Malaysia last October with his wife Reine, and their two sons Sheldon, 14, and four-year-old Cruz, to take up a job with CHC Helicopter. Mr Dalziel's brother-in-law Shane Hattingh said:

[Reine] is basically alone there other than with new friends. So she couldn't even talk to me. Apparently three people from the company were there with her. It's crazy, the kids are going to be absolutely shattered.

Investigators to examine second black box from MH17

Air investigators are to examine a second black box which was recovered from flight MH17 today. The data could reveal if the pilots were aware of a missile coming towards the plane and what happened in the last few seconds of the flight if they were able to speak.
