Flight delayed by jammed traffic cone

Aberdeen International Airport

A flight from Aberdeen to Heathrow was delayed for nearly two hours on Thursday evening after the plane was damaged by a traffic cone.

Passengers and luggage had to be taken off the British Airways (BA) jet while engineers examined it.

A misplaced cone had become wedged beneath the aircraft, but it was later allowed to continue its journey.

BA apologised for the delay.
