An independent tribunal in Australia has ordered a permanent end to the industrial dispute that has grounded all Qantas flights.

Fair Work Australia issued its ruling after hearing evidence from the airline, unions and government at an emergency session in Melbourne.

Nearly 70,000 people have been affected by the cancellation of hundreds of flights in 22 countries.

Stranded passengers at airports in Australia, who are facing long delays to their journeys, described their ordeal.
