Man kicked off London-bound flight

A London-bound flight from Chicago has been forced to land in eastern Canada to kick an unruly passenger off the plane.

American Airlines said the man had refused to listen to the flight crew's instructions and was handed over to authorities in Gander, Newfoundland, where the plane landed.

Spokesman Kent Powell said the plane was being refuelled to continue its journey to Heathrow Airport.

Flight 86 left Chicago at around 6pm local time and was originally scheduled to arrive at Heathrow at around 4am GMT.
