The landing is said to have been completed successfully.

A BA spokesman said the pilot had decided to divert as a precaution due to a technical issue and insisted there was no truth to local reports there was smoke in the cabin.

He said: 'We're very sorry for the delay to our customers' journeys after our aircraft diverted as a precaution due to a technical issue.'
