A man has pleaded guilty to a charge relating to the flight in which footballer Emiliano Sala died.

David Henderson, 67, admitted trying to arrange a flight for a passenger without permission or authorisation.

The plane carrying 28-year-old Sala and pilot David Ibbotson crashed into the English Channel in January 2019.

Henderson of Hotham, East Riding of Yorkshire, will go on trial after denying a separate charge of endangering the safety of an aircraft.

The charges have been brought by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) and relate to endangering the aircraft and operating commercially without permission.

Henderson is alleged to have arranged the flight carrying Sala and 59-year-old Mr Ibbotson.
