Footballer may have been unconscious before plane crash

Investigators say footballer Emiliano Sala and his pilot David Ibbotson were exposed to harmful levels of carbon monoxide before the plane crash which killed them.

Sala had just signed for Cardiff City from Nantes when the aircraft went down over the Channel in January.

An Air Accident Investigation Branch report reveals the player had enough of the gas in his blood to cause a heart attack or unconsciousness.
