A piece of metal found on a beach by a South African teenager is to be tested to see if it's a part of doomed flight MH370.

Liam Lotter, 18, picked it up off a beach in Mozambique in December. It wasn't until another piece of debris, suspected to be from the Malaysia Airlines flight, was found last week that he realised what it might be.

The metre-long piece found last week has been sent to Australia for testing, and South African authorities are to hand over Mr Lotter's piece soon.

"We are arranging for collection of the part, which will then be sent to Australia as they are the ones appointed by Malaysia to identify parts found," SACAA spokesman Kabelo Ledwaba told Reuters.

MH370 disappeared just over two years ago on a flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 on board. Authorities believe it went down somewhere in the Indian Ocean.

The first confirmed piece of debris from the Boeing 777-200 washed up on Reunion Island, near Madagascar, last year.
