Sala family search the waters near Burhou off Alderney

The family of footballer Emiliano Sala have been out in the waters near Burhou off Alderney today.

They went out by boat with Alderney harbour staff, continuing their search effort for the missing plane that was carrying the player, and pilot Dave Ibbotson.

The official search was called off last week, but the family are now funding a continuing effort to establish what happened to the light aircraft.

A crowdfunding page that was set up has received over €340,000 in donations for the private search, beating its target.

Tributes are due to take place tonight at Cardiff City's match against Arsenal.

The Welsh club had signed Emiliano Sala just days before his disappearance.
