"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.

The BA Source is reporting that the aircraft was the ex-BD 319 G-DBCB. The LHR-LYS flight it was operating on 6 March, BA364, was cancelled as was the early morning return flight, BA365, on the morning of 7 March. Instead 763 G-BNWX was substituted to operate BA360/61 on 7 March. It also carryied the passengers from the cancelled BA364/65.
