An Emirates airline plane has crash-landed at Dubai Airport after reportedly catching fire in mid-air.

The Dubai government confirmed the jet - which took off from India earlier today - had made an emergency stop at the airport shortly after 1pm local time (10am UK time).

None of the 300 people on board - including 24 Brits - are believed to have been injured and passengers have been evacuated.

Dramatic video appears to show the plane exploding on the runway.
