The Brazilian embassy in London says two bodies have been found in the search for missing British journalist Dom Phillips and Indigenous expert Bruno Pereira.

Police earlier said only their belongings had turned up, but in the last hour Brazil’s President Jair Bolsonaro said human remains had been discovered.

The pair went missing in a remote section of the Brazilian Amazon a week ago – and their families fear they have been killed.
