There is still "hope" that rescue teams will be able to find survivors after an explosion at a coal mine in western Turkey has left at least 201 workers dead, the Today programme has been told.
Andrew Watson from the Mines Rescue Service explained that a "focus" to the rescue effort can be gained by looking at mine plans.
He said that by barricading themselves into the mine, the trapped have a better chance of surviving.
