Heathrow Departures and Arrivals information
All passengers and crew were “safely evacuated” from the plane following the incident at about 09:00 BST.
John Coghlan told the BBC he saw a “black smoke trail” from the engine of a British Airways Airbus A319.
He said: “[It was a] safe landing and passengers evacuated by chutes on runway.” There was “no fire”, he added.
The southern runway has since re-opened. The northern runway remains closed.
I would expect rolling delays for some hours I am afraid.
BA are saying that :
Statement from BA: The BA762, Heathrow to Oslo service, returned back to Heathrow
shortly after take-off due to a technical fault.
The Airbus A319 aircraft was carrying 75 customers.
Looks like most diverted flights went to Gatwick, Stansted or Luton:
