Investigators have found wreckage of the Rescue 116 helicopter at Black Rock lighthouse but insist there is no evidence of "impact marks" at the site.

The search operation yesterday focused on the Black Rock lighthouse located 12km off the west coast, near where the helicopter's 'black box' signal was located.

Divers are now expected to wait until Sunday for favourable conditions to carry out a search for the wreckage of Rescue 116 and its three missing crew.
