Plane disappears

Plane disappears - An air and sea search is under way after a plane disappeared from radar in the English Channel. Rescue teams were scrambled to waters north of Alderney after the light aircraft vanished on Monday evening. The Piper Malibu, with two people on board, lost contact around eight miles north-west of Alderney at 8.30pm. The plane is thought to have been travelling from Nantes in Brittany to Cardiff. HM Coastguard said the incident was not in the UK search and rescue area, although it had sent two helicopters to help.
