A British Airways plane travelling from London to Oslo was forced to make an emergency landing at Heathrow on Friday after a technical fault in an engine. "The BA762, Heathrow to Oslo service, returned back to Heathrow shortly after take-off due to a technical fault," BA parent company IAG said. The Airbus A319 aircraft was carrying 75 passengers. "The aircraft landed safely and emergency slides were deployed and we are currently caring for our customers. Emergency services attended the aircraft," IAG added. The airport, Europe's busiest, closed both its runways to deal with the incident, but one has since re-opened. A spokesman for the London fire brigade, which attended the incident, said they believed the fire was now out.
