French prosecutors confirmed that a wing part found on a remote Indian Ocean island was from ill-fated Malaysia Airlines flight MH370, a month after tests began.

The Boeing 777 disappeared on Mach 8thlast year, mysteriously veering off course en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 people on board.

The disappearance turned into one of the biggest mysteries in the history of aviation, sparking a colossal hunt in the Indian Ocean based on satellite data which hinted at MH370's possible path.

In late July a man on Reunion Island, a French overseas territory, found the two-metre-long wing part washed up on a beach.
