'Tempers are running high' on stranded Air India plane

Passengers have been stranded on a plane at Gatwick Airport for more than eight hours after fog caused their flight to be diverted.

The Air India flight was on its way from Mumbai to Heathrow Airport when the weather conditions forced it to divert to Gatwick at about 08:00 BST.

A BBC World Service reporter on board, Rahul Joglekar, said the mood on the plane was becoming heated and the police had been called to calm the situation.
