The nose of a British Airways plane has collapsed while waiting at Heathrow.
Dozens of ambulances, police cars and fire engines are at the scene of the incident, with the nose of the plane pictured on the tarmac of the London airport.
No passengers were onboard the plane, which was on stand and due to operate as a freight service only.
It is not clear if any staff were on board or if anyone was hurt in the incident.
A witness told Metro.co.uk that emergency services arrived ‘within minutes’ of the nose collapsing and that the area is being cleared.
British Airways said it is launching an investigation into the extent of the damage.
A spokesperson for the company said: ‘A freighter aircraft has been damaged while stationary on stand. As a freighter only aircraft there were no passengers on board.
‘Safety is always our highest priority and we are investigating the matter.’
