Plane spotters saw the aeroplane circling above after it took off at just after 1.30pm on Sunday.

One of the wheels of the plane, which come out when taking off and landing, had failed to retract meaning it was still stuck outside the jet.

Photos taken from the ground clearly show one of the wheels still protruding from the Emirates flight EK18 while in the air.

One plane expert recorded the plane landing at Heathrow, at just after 3pm.

They said on “EK18 has landed safely, a great landing keeping the pressure off of the front gear.

The plane had been spotted by one woman circling over west Yorkshire “four times” before heading down south to land.
