The Air Accidents Investigation Branch say that a body has been "successfully recovered" from the plane carrying Emiliano Sala and David Ibbotson.

The Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) said: 'Following extensive visual examination of the accident site using the remotely operated vehicle (ROV), it was chose to attempt recovery operations.

The wreckage of the plane, which vanished two weeks ago over the English Channel, had been found off Guernsey.

Following extensive visual examination of the accident site using the remotely operated vehicle (ROV), it was chose to attempt recovery operations.

It continued: 'Unfortunately, attempts to recover the aircraft wreckage were unsuccessful before poor weather conditions forced us to return the ROV to the ship.

The body is being taken to the Isle of Portland on the South Coast of England, according to the Mirror, where it will be passed on to a coroner for an examination.

It was carried out in "as dignified a way as possible" and the men's families were kept updated throughout, it said.

The AAIB confirmed video of the wreckage would provide "valuable evidence for [their] safety investigation" and an "interim report" would be published within a month.

Sala had been travelling to Cardiff after saying goodbye to his former team-mates at Nantes, having sealed a transfer to the Premier League in a club-record deal for the Bluebirds.

After the initial search was called on January 24, Guernsey's harbour master David Barker said the chances of survival following such a long period were "extremely remote". Pleas from Sala's family, however, along with several soccer stars' outspoken support led to a continuation helmed by ocean scientist David Mearns, who has a reputation for tracking down elusive shipwrecks.

A body had already been picked up by underwater cameras, but investigators are yet to publicly confirm the identify of the body recovered.

The recovery of the body comes amid reports the French football club has demanded Cardiff make payment for the transfer of the player.
