    China Eastern Airlines has vowed to improve its pilots' English amid claims a plane took off without clearance from air traffic controllers in Japan.

    On Monday the Shangai-bound plane took to the skies after apparently being told to stay on the runway and then to abort take-off at Osaka airport.

    The plane landed safely in Shanghai later. The airline says it is co-operating with Japan's investigation.

    It says it will also "regulate our flight crews' English communications".

    Flight MU516, with 245 people on board, was due to fly from Osaka's Kansai International Airport to Shanghai.
