The final report into the downing of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17, which killed two Newcastle fans, will be issued in October.

298 people, including Magpies supporters Liam Sweeney and John Alder, were killed when the Boeing 777 came down over eastern Ukraine in July last year.

The pair were travelling to see their team play in a pre-season tour of New Zealand.

It's thought the jet was struck by a ground-to-air missile accidentally.

The Dutch Safety board will publish its findings on October 13th.
