The search for a plane that disappeared in the Bermuda Triangle with 11 passengers on board has been called off.

It also emerged the plane’s pilot, Adriano Jimenez, had been stripped of his Dominican licence in 2006 because he was caught flying planes when he was only authorised to fly helicopters, a spokesman for the Dominican Pilots Association said.

Mr Jimenez loaded 11 passengers on to a twin-engine plane in Santiago, Dominican Republic, on Monday and planned to fly to Mayaguana Island in the Bahamas, but he never arrived.
