Michelle Obama's plane 'too close' to jet

A plane carrying US First Lady Michelle Obama was forced to abort an attempt to land near Washington after getting too close to another plane.

Air traffic controllers told Mrs Obama's Boeing 737 to abandon its approach to Andrews Air Force Base after it came within three miles of a military cargo jet.

Wendy Urquhart reports.
