AirAsia flight QZ8501: Search teams bring wreckage ashore

The search area in the hunt for AirAsia flight QZ8501 has been expanded as efforts to locate the black box flight recorders continue.

Officials believe they may have located the plane's tail section and parts of the fuselage, but strong currents and high winds are making it hard to investigate.

So far only 39 bodies have been recovered from the accident in which 162 passengers and crew were killed.

Mike Wooldridge reports.
