A man has died after two air­port ve­hi­cles crashed at Heathrow.

The vic­tim, in his for­ties, was taken to a west Lon­don hospi­tal but could not be saved, the Met­ro­pol­i­tan Po­lice said.

An­other male suf­fered a sus­pected bro­ken shoul­der in the crash, which hap­pened on the air­field shortly after 6am yes­ter­day.

At least 20 Bri­tish Air­ways flights from Ter­mi­nal 5 were de­layed and pas­sen­gers were or­dered to leave an air­craft which was un­able to take off be­cause of the in­ci­dent.

A Heathrow spokes­woman said: “We are deal­ing with a se­ri­ous ac­ci­dent in­volv­ing two ve­hi­cles on the air­field.”
