Emiliano Sala’s body retrieved from plane wreck off Guernsey
The Emiliano Sala rescue team were pictured carrying the body ashore after recovering it from the plane wreckage.
Pictures showed the body bag being stretchered into a silver ambulance before being transported to the coroner for official identification.
The Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) said the families of both men had been kept informed of progress.
The AAIB successfully removed the body from 220ft deep last night.

Attempts to pull up the Piper Malibu wreckage were “unsuccessful” because of poor weather, it was revealed.
