Sir Richard Branson: These dramatic pictures bring home the horror of what happened last week. It’s very sad and I hope the investigators reach conclusions as quickly as possible.

Recovery personnel have located the vertical fin of the Air France Airbus A330 which crashed in the South Atlantic on 1 June.

The Brazilian defence ministry says it has discovered “dozens of structural components” from the aircraft.

Search teams have also retrieved a total of 16 victims, it adds. There were 228 occupants on the aircraft when it disappeared en route to Paris from Rio de Janeiro.
