The search for a missing light aircraft with two people on board is said to be now focused underwater.

Debris, including a tail fin from the microlight aircraft was found on Friday evening but no further wreckage has been found since.

Sonar equipment is now being used to search under the water between Glenarm and Carn Point just off the Antrim coast.

The Ikarus C42 disappeared after leaving City of Derry Airport for Scotland on Thursday.
