Further details released on Sala plane crash

AAIB report has said that Emiliano Sala was exposed to Carbon Monoxide

Emiliano Sala's blood showed high levels of carbon monoxide, that's according to a statement from the Air Accident Investigation Branch, and it was likely the pilot of the plane flying him to Wales had also been exposed before their fatal crash.

Sala, 28, was flying from his previous club Nantes to Wales to join Cardiff City when the Piper Malibu aircraft disappeared over the English Channel in January.

His body was recovered when the wreckage of the plane was finally discovered about two weeks later.

A special bulletin from Britain's Air Accident Investigation Branch said toxicology tests on his blood had shown that Sala had a saturation level of 58% of carboxyhaemoglobin (COHb), a mixture of carbon monoxide (CO) and haemoglobin.
