Part of an aircraft wing discovered off the coast of Tanzania belongs to the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370, Australian investigators have confirmed.

The large item of debris found, said to be the inboard section of the right outboard flap of the Boeing 777, was recovered in June.

MH370 was flying from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 people on board when it vanished in March 2014.

The aircraft is presumed to have crashed into the southern Indian Ocean after veering off course.

The debris is being examined for any evidence that may indicate how the flap was operating at the time of separation from the wing.

The Australian Transport Safety Board said: “This information may contribute to an increased understanding of end of flight scenarios.”
