A fuel leak in the wing tank of a Thai Airways International plane has delayed a flight due to leave Sapporo, Japan, for Bangkok on Wednesday morning. 

THAI president Sorajak Kasemsuvan said a routine pre-departure inspection detected a fuel leak from a valve in the plane's wing.

Flight TG671, a Boeing 777-300, was immediately postponed pending repairs to the aircraft. The flight was due to depart at 10.55am local time and arrive in Bangkok at 4.45pm.
