    Memorials have taken place in Brazil and Colombia to mark the one year anniversary of a plane crash that killed 71 people.

    Nineteen members of the Brazilian football team Chapecoense were among the dead when their plane went down while on route to the Colombian city of Medellin. The team were travelling to compete in the final of the Copa Sudamericana.

    Investigations later revealed the plane had run out of fuel and was overloaded.
