Rescue teams have carried out a search in the English Channel after a plane flying from the UK went missing.
The P-28 plane, which was carrying two people, took off from Wellesbourne, in Warwickshire, on Saturday morning bound for Le Touquet in northern France.
The French Coastguard said the aircraft is the “subject of a worrying disappearance” and a search for the plane was carried out “all afternoon”.
It said teams were unable to locate “any debris or aircraft wreckage” and the search would continue on Sunday morning.
All ships sailing in the area have been asked to search for any signs of the plane and report any sightings to French authorities, the coastguard said.
