Another chapter has passed in the hunt for missing Malaysian airliner MH370 - with the Australian Prime Minister announcing the end of the aerial search.

PM Tony Abbott said that "a much larger" area of the ocean floor would now be targeted.

But he said it was "highly unlikely" any surface wreckage would be found, and suspended aerial searches.

Jon Donnison reports form Sydney.
