French football star Kylian Mbappe has donated £27,000 to a fundraising appeal set up by the family of missing pilot David Ibbotson.

Mr Ibbotson, from Crowle, Lincolnshire, was flying Cardiff City's Emiliano Sala from Nantes to the UK when their plane crashed near Guernsey on 21 January.

An official search was called off on 24 January, but Sala's body was found after an appeal launched by his agent raised £324,000 (371,000 euros) for a private search.

The footballer's body was recovered from the wreck on the seabed, but Mr Ibbotson's body has not been found.

Former England captain Gary Lineker has also donated £1,000.

By Sunday evening more than 7,000 donations had been received, pushing the total raised to more than £130,000 of the page's £300,000 target.
