A man has died after two airport vehicles crashed at Heathrow Airport.

"Another male, aged in his 40s, was taken to a west London hospital with serious injuries".

The BBC reports passengers on one plane were forced to evacuate after the crash. Another man involved in the crash was treated on scene for non-life threatening injuries.

A Met Police spokesman said: "Police are investigating following a fatal collision at Heathrow airport".
