Missing plane 'flew on for hours'

It has emerged the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 may have been flying for more than five hours after it disappeared.

It is believed the plane was sending automated signals to a satellite system long after radar contact was lost.

The plane - which was supposed to be flying to Beijing from Kuala Lumpur - last made contact with air traffic control over the South China Sea to the east of Malaysia.

Rupert Wingfield-Hayes reports from Kuala Lumpur.
