A British couple, quarantined on a cruise ship off the coast of Japan, have tested positive for the coronavirus.

Sally and David Abel are among 74 British citizens, on the vessel, the Diamond Princess.

Japanese officials say there are on-board 542 confirmed cases, making it the largest cluster outside China.

The UK Foreign Office says it's "working to organise a flight back to the UK" for British nationals.
