A Royal Navy survey ship has been sent to help with the search for the Malaysia Airlines plane after debris was sighted off the coast of Australia

HMS Echo is in the area where two large objects have been spotted on satellite pictures, the Ministry of Defence said.

At a news conference on Wednesday, Malaysian Transport Minister Hishammuddin Hussein described the possible sighting as a “credible lead”.

Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 was flying from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing on March 8 when it went out of contact with air traffic controllers.
