Fire downed Swissair 111


Investigators have concluded the Swissair Flight 111 crash was caused by a fire on board the aircraft.

The fire is thought to have started when a spark from a damaged wire ignited insulation material in the in-flight entertainment system.

All 229 people on board the flight were killed when the aircraft plunged into the Atlantic in 1998.

Canada's Transportation Safety Board has published their final conclusions from an investigation which has taken more than four years and cost $30m.
