Family mourns Sala after body in channel wreckage identified

The body of Sala was recovered from the plane wreckage on the seabed after a privately funded search, but Mr Ibbotson has not been found.

Cardiff City footballer Emiliano Sala died from severe injuries when the plane he was flying in crashed into the English Channel, an inquest has heard.

A flight carrying the striker from Nantes to Cardiff following his £15million transfer to the Premier League club crashed into the sea near Alderney on January 21.

Acting senior Dorset coroner Brendan Allen said during a hearing on Monday (Tuesday NZT) the Air Accidents Investigation Branch investigation could take up to 12 months.

Pilot David Ibbotson is still missing.

But strong currents and winter weather forced them to call off the search before locating 59-year-old pilot - the only other person on the Piper Malibu propeller aircraft.

Footage posted on social media after the game appeared to show the men making airplane gestures, in Cardiff's first match played since Sala's body was found.

But Maduro, who has asked Pope Francis to act as a mediator, rejected what he said was "bias" by the group. They have not yet announced how they plan for the aid to enter if the military does not consent.

Home Office Forensic Pathologist Basil Purdue carried out a post-mortem examination which confirmed the cause of death as injuries to Sala's head and body.

Launching the new page on Go Fund Me, Mr Ibbotson's family appealed for help to "bring [him] home and help give him the send off he deserves".

But Warnock believes his players will benefit from time with their families following the death of the club's record signing Emilano Sala.

Former England captain Gary Lineker has also donated £1,000 to the cause.

Two Southampton fans have been detained by police after apparently mocking the death of Cardiff City footballer Emiliano Sala, during a match between the two teams on Saturday.

"Many of us kept a glimmer of hope for you, Emiliano", football icon Maradona said on Instagram, following the identification of the body.

An official search was called off on January 24 but more $A550,000 was raised by stars including Lionel Messi to help fund a private search.
