Chinese authorities have said there is unlikely to be any survivors from China Eastern flight MU5735 which crashed in the Southern region of China.

The Boeing 737-800 B1791 was operating a flight from Kunming to Guanghzou when according to flight data, it entered a sudden steep dive and crashed into a remote area sparking a forest fire.

Pictures from the scene shared on social media show small fragments of debris and an unverified photo appears to show the aircraft in a complete nose down attitude.

Rescuers are at the scene of the crash and Chinese authorities will now begin an investigation into the accident.
