From Morning Report, 7:10 am on 3 July 2018

Twelve boys and their football coach have been found alive after being missing for 9 days in a cave in Northern Thailand. The Chiang Rai governor Narongsak Osatanakorn announced the good news to media outside the cave. The children are said to be too weak to move. Now the difficult task begins of getting them out. Jonathan Head from the BBC is outside the cave and says officials are still discussing what to do next. RNZ correspondent in Thailand, Richard Ehrlich, says there's jubilation in the country.
