Problems with a Fiji Airways plane this morning - the flight had to be turned back to Auckland after the engine caught fire.
128 people were on board when the plane, which is believed to be a 737, which took off for Suva just after 10 but it was forced to turn back less than an hour later.

A New Zealand Fire Service spokesperson says the plane landed safely but six appliances were on hand and watched as passengers got off.
There has been no statement from the newly launched Fiji Airways and none of the Fiji media have run the story yet.
Fiji Airways has purchased two new A330 Airbuses this year to replace its 737s.
