AirAsia Flight: Teams hope to lower cameras to seabed

The search for the missing AirAsia plane is continuing in the Java Sea but is being hampered by bad weather.

Officials say they believe they have found some parts of the plane off the island of Borneo after detecting "two large objects".

Flight QZ8501 disappeared with 162 people on board while flying from Surabaya in Indonesia to Singapore last Sunday.

Rupert Wingfield-Hayes reports from Pangkalan Bun, the closest town to the presumed crash site.
