Thailand cave latest: Rescue attempt of 12 young footballers and their coach begins


Divers have gone in to begin to bring out 12 boys and their football coach who have been trapped in a flooded cave in Thailand for more than two weeks. With some mild weather and falling water levels, the acting Chiang Rai governor this morning declared "today is D-Day" as 13 foreign and five Thai divers began to undertake what will remain a hazardous rescue operation. It began at 10am local time (4am UK time) and he said it would take at least 11 hours for the first person to be rescued.
