"A British Airways plane had to make an emergency landing after it experienced an “engine surge” during takeoff last night."
"Tom Puttick, who works near Heathrow said: “I was in the petrol station opposite the airport which is when I heard the bang, so I turned around and the airplane had flames spitting out of the engine with a spluttering noise as it was taking off."
Happy ending,returned safely and passengers had a free nights hotel stay.
