A new search area for the missing Malaysian plane has been announced by the Australian government after further analysis of satellite data.

Deputy Prime Minister Warren Truss confirmed that the search will now shift south to focus on an area 1,800km off the west coast of Australia.

Flight MH370 vanished en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing on 8 March with 239 passengers on board.

Officials said they believed the plane had been on autopilot when it crashed.

A 64-page report released by the Australian government concluded that the underwater search for the plane should resume in the new 60,000 square km area.
