Recovery teams are launching a "massive search" in the Java Sea for victims of the AirAsia flight QZ8501 crash, as investigators look for the plane's crucial data recorders.

Indonesian officials have confirmed that remains and debris found in the waters off Borneo are from the plane.

The navy initially said 40 bodies had been recovered, although other media later quoted the head of the search and rescue agency, as saying only three bodies had been retrieved.

The plane has yet to be found.

The Airbus A320-200, carrying 162 people from Surabaya in Indonesia to Singapore, disappeared on Sunday.
