Police were last night investigating after a drone crashed into a British Airways jet over Heathrow in what is believed to be the first case of its kind.

The pilot of the BA727 flight from Geneva, carrying 132 passengers and five crew members, reported to police that the front of the aircraft had been struck by the unmanned object shortly before it landed at lunchtime on Sunday.

Although the aircraft landed intact and was later cleared for its next flight, it has renewed calls for more to be done to curb drone use amid a quadrupling of near-misses involving drones and aircraft in the UK in recent months.
