European regulator EASA has become the latest aviation safety agency to order a grounding of Boeing's 787 in the light of problems with its lithium-ion batteries.

EASA adopted the US FAA's emergency airworthiness directive on 17 January.

It affects the two Dreamliners operated by LOT Polish Airlines.

"[EASA] continues to carefully monitor the situation and is prepared to provide any support the FAA may require in their investigation."
