Qantas has grounded one of its Boeing 737 NG planes.

It comes after the Australian airline discovered "cracking" in a section of the aircraft.

Several other airlines around the world are also double-checking to make sure their 737 NG fleets are unaffected.

Meanwhile Boeing has said that an area near the wing of the model could be capable of cracking.
