    An Emirates flight from Oman to Dubai was cancelled after staff found a snake on the plane.

    Flight EK0863 from Muscat was grounded after baggage handlers found the serpent in the cargo hold.

    A spokesperson for the airline, quoted by Dubai-based media, said the snake was found before passengers boarded the plane.

    Emirates did not specify the species of snake, nor whether it was potentially dangerous.
