Boeing has halted deliveries of the 787 Dreamliner until regulators can ensure that its lithium ore batteries are completely safe.

An All Nippon Airways 787 was forced to make an emergency landing in western Japan this week when warning lights came on during a domestic flight.

Japanese and US aviation officials are investigating the badly damaged battery removed from the aircraft.
