    That's amazing news, it wasn't looking good. Delighted they were found safe. A good news story for a change.

    One picture on CNN from inside the cave shows them look cheerful, smiling and giving thumbs up to the camera.

    Apparently, they'd managed to make their way to an "elevated, dry area" of the cave complex.

    Fantastic piece of news in fairness. Not often these things work out this way and I didn't think this was going to end well but great stuff altogether.

    The local governor is saying that the boys will be taken out once the cave is drained. Others say that they'll still need to be brought out underwater and that none of them have ever dived before so that will be a very difficult process.

    Not sure they were in total darkness. Surely they took torches with them to explore. Having a group in the same situation would likely lessen any mental scars. Hope the coach was upbeat.
