British Airways plane 'dumps fuel' before returning to UK with stuck landing gear

A British Airways plane bound for Hong Kong has had to turn around and return to Heathrow due to technical problems.

BA has confirmed that flight 25, which took off at 6.40pm on Monday, had to come back to London because the aircraft's landing gear stuck.

It spent some time circling off the coast of Essex where pilots dumped fuel before returning to Heathrow, where the plane landed safely at 9.15pm.
