The main body of the crashed AirAsia plane has been located and photographed in the Java Sea, say officials.

The head of Indonesia’s search and rescue agency, Bambang Soelistyo, said the fuselage had been spotted by search teams on Tuesday.

On Wednesday, Singapore’s Defence Minister Ng Eng Hen posted pictures taken by an unmanned Singaporean vehicle on his Facebook page.

He said the images confirmed the plane was flight QZ8501.

AirAsia lost contact with the flight on 28 December as it was flying from Surabaya in Indonesia to Singapore with 162 people on board.

Dozens of bodies have been found but many of the passengers and crew are thought to still be inside the plane. So far the plane’s two flight recorders and a tail section have been found and brought to shore.
