Sala's pilot's wife hopes new evidence will clear his name
The wife of David Ibbotson, the pilot killed alongside footballer Emiliano Sala, said she hopes the new evidence that has emerged will clear her husband’s name.
Investigators have said that an interim report shows footballer Sala was exposed to harmful levels of carbon monoxide before he was killed in a plane crash and it is likely his Mr Ibbotson was also affected.
In an exclusive interview with Good Morning Britain, David’s wife, Nora Ibbotson said: "It was a relief because it was out of David’s control. They couldn’t smell it, they couldn’t see it. If he knew, he wouldn’t have flown it."
The body of the star striker, who just signed with Cardiff City, was found after a privately funded search - but David's remains have never been recovered.
Nora hopes this new evidence will help clear her husband of any blame.
She went on to say: "We have to stay strong and positive because we want the results for Dave."
