A private underwater search is currently looking for the plane that was carrying Emiliano Sala and Dave Ibbotson.

David Mearns, a marine explorer working alongside the Air Accidents Investigation Branch has said they are trying and "locate a wreckage", rather than an intact plane.

An official search was called off at the end of last week after nothing was found of the plane.

Mr Mearns said that the search will continue "until the plane is located."

He continued to say the families of the two men "are devastated and we are trying to provide answer to them."

ITV News reporter, Paul Davies heard from David Mearns and what the plan was for the search.
