The final report into a plane crash at Cork Airport, which killed six people, is expected to be published today.

The Air Accident Investigation Unit's detailed and complex inquiry has taken almost three years to complete.

The Manx 2 commuter flight from Belfast overturned on the runway at Cork Airport on February 10, 2011.

Six others survived the crash which happened as the aircraft was making its third landing attempt in dense fog.

The interim report found no pre-accident defects in the engines or propellers, but a faulty fuel control sensor was discovered in the right side engine.
