Possible breakthrough in plane hunt

It's a story that has been making news headlines around the world - the search for a plane that went missing almost two weeks ago.

The Malaysian Airlines plane disappeared after it left Kuala Lumpur on 8th March, and it's not been seen since.

Now, a sighting in the southern Indian Ocean, about 1,500 miles off the coast of Australia, has lead to experts trying to work out if it is a major clue in the hunt.
