A Japan Airlines flight has been grounded at Los Angeles airport after a large object was sucked into one of the plane's engines, officials say.

They say the incident happened as JAL flight 62 was leaving one of the airport's gates.

Television footage showed the object - believed to be a cargo container - wedged into the engine.

All 245 passengers on board were taken off the plane and escorted to the terminal. No injuries were reported.

Los Angeles World Airports, the agency which operates the airport, says an investigation is currently under way.
