Qantas engine explosion in 2010 dents profits

Qantas Airways said its first-half net profits had risen four-fold, but it added that last year's explosion in one of its Rolls-Royce engines had wiped off 55m Australian dollars ($55.4m; £34.3m).

The breakdown led to the grounding of its A380 aircraft last year.

Nick Bryant reports from Sydney.
