A US coastguard official has pinpointed the exact time the crew of the Titan submersible will run out of oxygen.
The vessel has been missing since Sunday, having embarked upon a mission to explore the wreckage of the Titanic. Those onboard include billionaire Briton Hamish Harding.
Search teams identified several undersea noises which they thought might be coming from the sub – but these now appear to be unrelated.
Speaking earlier, a US coast guard spokeswoman has said the Titan will run out at exactly 12.08pm today (BST).
Earlier this morning, the US Coast Guard North East Twitter account posted: “Canadian P-3 aircraft detected underwater noises in the search area.
“As a result, ROV operations were relocated in an attempt to explore the origin of the noises.
“Those ROV searches have yielded negative results but continue.
“Additionally, the data from the P-3 aircraft has been shared with our US Navy experts for further analysis which will be considered in future search plans.”
