An international passenger plane has crash landed short of the runway at Heathrow Airport. Passengers escaped down the emergency chutes after British Airways flight BA38 from Beijing came down.
Six ambulances were sent to the scene and three people were treated at the scene for minor injuries.
The incident happened as Prime Minister Gordon Brown was due to leave Heathrow for China and India. His flight was delayed because of the incident.
The south runway is closed while investigators examine the scene - the north runway remains open.
