The 12 boys and their football coach trapped in waterlogged caves in Thailand will not be rescued overnight as they “cannot dive”, officials say.

The boys have been trapped for nearly two weeks in a chamber in the Tham Luang cave complex.

They ventured in while the cave was dry but were caught out by a sudden deluge of rain, which flooded the system.

Earlier, a former Thai navy diver died on his way out of the caves after delivering air tanks to those trapped.
