    Divers have managed to go several kilometres into a flooded cave in Thailand, looking for 12 young footballers and their coach who've been missing for a week.

    Local rescue crews have been joined by British divers and US military personnel.

    A new opening to the underground complex was discovered on Friday, offering hope the boys may still be found alive.

    As Scott Heidler reports, relatives remain positive despite so many questions, and few answers.
