    A rat grounded a plane for 13 hours in the Philippines.

    It happened after passengers on a Qatar Airways plane at Manila airport spotted the rat on board, reports La Cuarta.

    The pilot ordered passengers off the Doha-bound flight and a search was launched.

    But after 13 hours, maintenance workers had still not been able to find and catch the rat.

    Eventually, passengers reboarded and the flight took off - still unaware of whether or not the rat was still on board.

    Octavio Lina, chief of operations at the airport, said: "I have never seen such an incident before!"
