Indonesia plane crash: Rescue workers search site

Clearer weather has finally allowed Indonesian helicopters to land at the site of the wreckage of a Russian-made plane, which crashed into the side of a mountain in Indonesia on Wednesday.

Rescuers have been struggling to reach the area and recover the remains of those onboard.

The Sukhoi Superjet 100 was carrying at least 45 people on a demonstration flight when it lost contact with air traffic controllers on the ground.

From Jakarta, our Indonesia correspondent, Karishma Vaswani reports.
