The crew of a Royal Navy ship are "working 24/7" to hunt for flight recorders from the missing Malaysian plane.

HMS Echo is helping to search the southern Indian Ocean after Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 vanished with 239 people on board on 8th March.

Sonar "pings" were detected last week by search teams - but no new signals have been confirmed since last Tuesday.

The ship, whose specialist equipment has been adapted to pick up signals from the plane's black box flight recorders, arrived in the search area on Thursday.
