No trace of missing pilot in Sala plane crash search

Mr Ibbotson was the pilot of the piper malibu plane which crashed into the English Channel earlier this month.

A search for the body of missing pilot David Ibbotson has failed to find any trace of him.

Mr Ibbotson was the pilot of the piper malibu plane which crashed into the English Channel earlier this month. The small aircraft was also carrying Cardiff City footballer, Emiliano Sala.

The man leading the search, David Mearns, tweeted to say that despite "highly experienced" crews being involved, "sadly there was absolutely no sign" of Mr Ibbotson.

Emiliano Sala body was recovered from plane wreckage in the English Channel at the beginning of February.

On Monday it was announced that an investigation will focus on the validity of the pilot's licence.
