Sky News

There was drama in the skies over Worcester Park this morning as a low flying 747 thundered over the rooftops of KT4 as it prepared for an emergency landing at Heathrow Airport.

Blog reader Janis writes:

"I came out of my front door this morning to see a VERY low flying BA jet passing over Trent Way - just seen on the news that it had to make an emergency landing after just 10 minutes.

 Never seen one that low even though we're used to the Chinooks etc. Glad it landed okay, and at the airport!"

More details on The Telegraph website.

Apparently a warning light came on indicating that one of the doors wasn't shut properly (I supposed they can't do like you do in a car and just lean over and open the door and pull it shut tightly).
