Tons of gold have fallen out of the sky in Russia after a cargo plane malfunctioned in mid-air.

The aircraft was carrying £265m worth of platinum, gold and diamonds when the hatch flew open – sending the precious metals plummeting back to earth.

According to the TASS news agency, Russian authorities have recovered more than 170 gold bars weighing 20kg each.
