The pilot who is missing along with footballer Emiliano Sala has been named as Dave Ibbotson.

Mr Ibbotson, from Crowle, near Scunthorpe, was flying Sala from France to Cardiff when the single-turbine engine Piper PA-46 Malibu plane went missing over the English Channel on Monday night.

Rescue workers suspended the search for the missing plane on Wednesday night having found "no trace" of the aircraft, police said.

Rough sea conditions are reducing the likelihood of survivors being found, one rescue leader said.
