An initial report into engine failure on a Boeing 777 plane in the US suggests it was caused by metal fatigue.

The incident, which took place after take-off from Denver International Airport on Saturday, caused regulators in certain parts of the world to temporarily ban the models, if they have Pratt and Whitney engines.

Investigators say they found damage to a fan blade.
