Hunt on for Tenerife meteor

The hunt is on in Tenerife to find a small fragment of a meteor that scientists believe fell to earth in the Vilaflor area over a month ago.

Telescopes across the Canaries detected a bright object falling to the ground in May, and now the hunt is on for any fragments that could have survived entry into the atmosphere.

Scientists have narrowed the point where the fragment landed to an area of 200 metres in Vilaflor, although hopes of finding anything of the meteor remain slim.
