The US Navy says it believes it has found the wreckage of a cargo ship which went missing off the Bahamas during Hurricane Joaquin last month.

The El Faro disappeared while sailing from Florida to Puerto Rico with 33 crew on board. It sent out a distress signal on 1 October, saying it had lost power and was taking on water.

Debris was spotted in the ocean in the days after it disappeared, and one body was recovered.

If the discovery is confirmed, attempts are to be made to locate and recover the voyage data recorder.
