Passengers survive plane crash in Bali

More than 100 passengers clambered out of a Boeing 737 after it missed the runway at Bali's Denpasar Airport yesterday and landed in the sea.

The aircraft, left sitting in water with a cracked fuselage, was operated by the budget airline Lion Air – which is banned from flying in Europe after a string of accidents.

Officials confirmed all 108 people on board survived the crash. About 45 were treated for injuries.

One survivor said: "The aircraft was in landing position when suddenly I saw it getting closer to the sea, and finally it hit the water."

An air crash investigation is now under way.
