Officials in Indonesia say they have found the "black box" voice recorder from a Lion Air flight which crashed off the coast of Jakarta in October.

The first black box, the plane's flight data recorder, was found last November, buried in debris on the floor of the Java Sea. Listening to the last conversations between the pilots and ground control on the CVR should help investigators to finish piecing together what went wrong in the short flight.
