Heathrow passenger: 'A loud popping sound after take-off'

A passenger on board a plane that made an emergency landing at Heathrow has been speaking about the experience.

David Gallagher was travelling on a Heathrow to Oslo service when it was forced to turn back after a technical fault at about 09:00 BST.

Witnesses reported seeing flames coming from the engine.

Mr Gallagher said: "I have huge respect for the staff on the plane and the ground staff for being so well-prepared and knowing exactly what to do to get everybody out of harm's way".
