Identifying the remains and body parts found at the MH17 crash site will be "very challenging" because of the nature of the disaster, a British official taking a leading role in the grim process has exclusively told ITV News.
Detective Inspector Howard Way of the Association of Chief Police Officers (Acpo) is among a team of nine British officials sent by the Foreign Office to join the disaster investigation.
He told ITV News Correspondent Rohit Kachroo the international effort in the Netherlands to identify the remains will take "weeks and months".
The mother of the three Australian children killed on flight MH17 told a memorial service her "arms would always be reaching for them."
A woman has apparently posted pictures of herself on social media with mascara looted from the Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 crash site.
A large section of plane wreckage and everyday carry-on items like chocolates remain scattered among the wild flowers at the crash site.
