A gunman who hijacked a passenger plane in the Jamaican resort of Montego Bay has surrendered.

Six crew members held hostage by the man were released unharmed.

More than 150 passengers were on board when the man forced his way onto the Canada-bound plane at about 10pm on Sunday (0300 GMT Monday), demanding passage to Cuba.

All were released within hours. The man surrendered on Monday morning.
