Debris found on WA coast not from missing flight MH370

MYSTERIOUS chunks of debris that washed up on the coast of Western Australia are not related to missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370.

By lunchtime on Thursday, the Australian Transport Safety Bureau told the ABC the find had nothing to do with the missing jet.

ATSB chief commissioner Martin Dolan said it was "not a lead".

Meanwhile 11 aircrafts and 11 ships were scouring an area 1584km north-west of Perth.
