A spokesman for Aeroports de Paris said an incident “ linked to security” had led staff to evacuate the 130 passengers onboard Heathrow-bound flight BA 303.

“ There was an incident that led authorities to decide to keep the plane on the ground and to disembark the passengers a few minutes before take -off , to carry out additional checks , ” the spokesman said .
