An Indonesian plane was temporarily grounded after passengers complained about an overwhelming smell of durian in the cabin.

Around two tonnes of durian, the world’s stinkiest fruit, was in the cargo hold of the Sriwijaya Air flight, bound for Jakarta from Bengkulu.

Passengers demanded that the fruit be removed, with some almost coming to blows with crew members.

The airline eventually relented and unloaded sacks of the durian fruit.

The flight eventually took off around 11:40am local time (04:40 GMT), an hour later than scheduled.
