A body's been recovered from the wreckage of a plane which crashed in the English Channel with Cardiff City's recent signing Emiliano Sala and his pilot.

Air accident investigators haven't identified the remains yet.

The body was being taken to the Isle of Portland in order to be passed into the care of the Dorset coroner.

Bad weather's stopped them retrieving the light aircraft, which came down last month.

The plane was discovered on Sunday by marine recovery specialists who were hired thanks to a crowdfunding appeal launched after the official search was called off.

Meanwhile there's now legal action from Nantes, Sala's former football club, who want Cardiff to pay their 17 million euro transfer fee, which hasn't been paid yet.
