A Leeds University student is feared to have been among the 298 people aboard the Malaysia Airlines MH17 flight when it crashed in eastern Ukraine.

Tributes have been paid to Richard Mayne, 20, who is believed to have been on board the Boeing 777-200 aircraft flying from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur which was apparently shot down over the war-torn country.

Nine Britons are known to have died in the crash, including two Newcastle United fans, John Alder and Liam Sweeney, and World Health Organisation media officer Glenn Thomas.
