AirAsia QZ8501: Search for 'black boxes' continues

Search teams trying to find the main part of AirAsia flight QZ8501, which went down in the Java Sea, say they have still not detected any signal from the plane's "black box" flight recorders.

An intense search by ships is now under way close to where several bodies were found on the water's surface.

The plane was flying from Surabaya in Indonesia to Singapore with 162 people on board when it went down.

Rupert Wingfield-Hayes reports from Kalimantan.
