The Airbus 320 had been travelling from Bari, Italy, to Gatwick, but was forced to make the emergency stop when the jet became enveloped in smoke.

British Airways then sent another plane to pick up the stranded passengers and return them to the UK.

One of the passengers told the Sun: 'The cabin started to smell of smoke and then we could see smoke and the crew were looking a bit worried so the captain came over the Tannoy and announced we were making an emergency landing.'
