In the early hours of Tuesday, emergency services reported that a small plane traveling from Nantes in France to Cardiff had gone missing near the island of Alderney.
Cardiff chairman Mehmet Dalman told the Mirror: “We are very concerned by the latest news that a light aircraft lost contact over the Channel last night.
