The incident occurred last night after the aircraft declared an emergency at around 11pm.

The emergency, known as a “Squawk Code 7700” is the signal used by airlines when there is an emergency incident which requires ground assistance but the plane is already in the air.

The BA1496 flight, which normally has a flight time of one hour and 25 minutes, took off from London Heathrow Airport at 9.56pm.

Pilots entered the squawk code shortly after 11pm.
