Ethiopian Airlines black boxes found at crash site

At least nine British people are now believed to have been killed in yesterday’s Ethiopian Airlines crash. The Boeing 737 Max 8 crashed minutes after take-off on its journey from Addis Ababa to the Kenyan capital Nairobi, killing all 157 on board.

The flight recorders from the aircraft have been found. The same type of plane was involved in a crash in Indonesia last October and scores of these planes have now been grounded by several major airlines.
