Air Asia plane suffers 'washing machine' fault

A passenger on board an AirAsia X plane has filmed it shaking like a "washing machine" after suffering a technical fault.

Flight D7237 was forced to turn back to Perth after taking off for Malaysia just before 07:00 local time (00:00BST) on Sunday.

Water Police said emergency services north of Perth were put on standby for a possible water landing.

A number of passengers told ABC News the plane suffered an "engine seizure" - AirAsia X said only that it was a "technical issue".
