Swan brings Heathrow runway to a standstill

A swan has caused a queue of aircraft at Heathrow, leaving passengers waiting while staff tried to escort it from the runway.

Aviation enthusiast Daniel, who was flying back to his home in Sweden, caught the incident on camera as he waited for his flight at Heathrow Airport.

He told the BBC that he and several other onlookers watched the chase and said that the situation was "handled very well".
