    An airliner which was forced to abort take-off twice after alarmed passengers spotted fuel spewing from a wing, is set to make a third attempt.

    Britons have told of their frantic efforts to stop the Phuket Air flight taking off at Sharjah in the United Arab Emirates.

    The flight from Bangkok to Gatwick was forced to abort takeoff twice after refuelling, according to some passengers.

    According to one witness, passengers screamed and refused to sit in their seats as they demanded the pilot abandon his attempt to get the plane in the air.

    Three hours later, the pilot tried for a second take-off after the Boeing 747-300 was fixed, but passengers again spotted fuel spillage and the plane remained grounded, she claimed.

    Some 400 Britons were stuck in the desert stop-off overnight.
