A British Airways plane has suffered a nose gear collapse on the tarmac at Heathrow Airport - seriously injuring a crew member - after an engineer 'failed to lock it out'.

Shocking photos show the Dreamliner 787-8 with its nose on the ground and broken landing gear while a stair car stands by.

Airport emergency crews rushed to the scene with the extent of the damage to the plane not yet known. Medics assessed two staff with one in need of hospital treatment.
