London: Black boxes from the Malaysia Airlines plane MH17 downed in eastern Ukraine will be examined by UK air accident investigators, Britain's prime minister said on Tuesday.

British experts at the Air Accidents Investigation Branch will retrieve data from the flight recorders for analysis, following a request from the government of the Netherlands, David Cameron said on Twitter.

The experts expect to download all the information within 24 hours of retrieving them, a Department of Transport spokesman said. They will not publish their findings but will pass them on to Dutch authorities, who will then decide what information can be released.

Earlier Tuesday, pro-Russia separatists in Ukraine handed the two black boxes from Flight 17 over to Malaysian investigators in the city of Donetsk. Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak said the handover was part of an agreement he had reached with rebel leader Alexander Borodai.

Najib said the black boxes of the MH 17 appeared "to be in good condition."
