Body recovered at sea in search for Sala is brought back to mainland Britain

ROUGH CUT.

NO REPORTER NARRATION A body from the wreckage of the plane that was carrying Argentina-born professional soccer player Emiliano Sala and pilot David Ibbotson reached mainland Britain on Thursday (February 7) at a port in the southern British county of Dorset.

The Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) did not disclose the identity of the body, which was found inside the plane wreckage on the seabed near Guernsey.

Sala, 28, had been en route from Nantes in western France on January 21 to make his debut for Premier League team Cardiff City when the plane disappeared over the English Channel.

The body was "successfully recovered" but attempts to recover the aircraft wreckage were unsuccessful, the AAIB said in a statement on Wednesday (February 7).

The overall operation was brought to an end due to "poor weather conditions," the agency said.

Sala had agreed to join Welsh club Cardiff for a club-record fee of £15 million from French Ligue 1 club Nantes.

He and the pilot are believed to have died as the single-engined Piper Malibu aircraft crashed into the sea.
