Part of the wing from missing flight MH370 has been found in Mauritius.

Authorities have confirmed that the part belongs to the Malaysia Airlines Flight, after experts at the Australian Transport Safety Bureau analysed the wing flap.

The team has been leading the search in a remote part of the sea off Australia's west coast.

It was confirmed when the part number on the piece was linked to the missing Boeing 777, according to a statement from the ATSB.

The identification has also been confirmed by Malaysian Transport Minister Liow Tiong Lai.

The plane went missing in March 2014, with 239 passengers and crew on board, travelling from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing.

Last month another part was found in Tanzania.
