BRITISH AIRWAYS FLIGHTS DELAYED BY 'TECHNICAL ISSUE'

Delays being experienced at Heathrow and Gatwick

British Airways flights are being disrupted due to a "technical issue", the airline said.

Flights to and from the UK's two busiest airports, Heathrow and Gatwick, appear to be among those affected.

By 9am on Thursday, 45 flights due to land at Heathrow had been delayed by more than 45 minutes.

The worst affected was Flight BA170 from Pittsburgh, in the US, which was more than 12 hours behind schedule.

A spokeswoman for the airline said: "Our teams are working hard to resolve a technical issue which is affecting some of our flights, and we have rebooked customers on to alternative flights and offered hotel accommodation where they have been unable to continue their journeys last night.

"We are very sorry for the disruption to their travel plans.

"We plan to operate a full flight schedule today."
