Plane in near miss with drone at Heathrow

A passenger plane about to land at Heathrow airport had a near miss with an unidentified drone, the Civil Aviation Authority has confirmed.

The pilot of the Airbus A320 reported seeing a "helicopter-style drone" - which had not been picked up on his radar.

Pilots are becoming increasingly concerned over safety, as sales of drones soar over Christmas.
