Ryanair has rejected claims made about its safety record in a Channel 4 documentary screened tonight.

The Dispatches programme featured a number of anonymous Ryanair pilots, who made allegations relating to a number of safety issues.

In a statement tonight, the company said it had an outstanding 29-year safety record.

Ryanair also said the "false and defamatory claims" were based on "nothing more than anonymous hearsay".
