Australian searchers have spotted bright orange objects in the southern Indian Ocean, but it is not yet clear whether they belong to the missing plane.

It was revealed that crew on board an Australian Orion aircraft located the several objects, greater than two meters in size, in a five nautical mile area within the huge search zone where the Malaysia Airlines plane is thought to have gone down.

According to news.com.au, flight Lieutenant Russell Adams said he cannot confirm the origin of these objects.

Photos of the objects will be assessed to determine whether they are related to the missing plane.

If authorities believe they may be debris from MH370, a ship will be sent to the location.

Adams said he was hopeful of finding more objects if favourable weather conditions continued, the report added.
