Experts tracking China's defunct Tiangong-1 space lab say it could now fall to Earth later than thought.

The analysis had suggested the 10m-long, 8.5-tonne spacecraft would plunge into the Earth's atmosphere between midday Saturday and the afternoon of Sunday (GMT) - and it still could.

But the most recent assessment has extended the estimated window for re-entry.

It now goes out to the late evening of Sunday, 1 April.

The situation remains highly variable.

China lost all contact with, and control over, Tiangong in 2016.
