One of the British divers who was key to saving 12 Thai footballers and their coach from a cave deep underground in Thailand, has described in detail how the search and rescue missions happened.

Rick Stanton from Coventry said he literally "sniffed out" the boys when searching 1.5km into the cave.

The diver also explained how the boys were all unconscious when they were brought out of the cave one-by-one.
