Flames and a huge black cloud of smoke was seen rising from a set of mobile stairs attached to an A320, engulfing its tail.

The thick column was pictured so high that it could be seen from behind several other terminal buildings at the busy airport.

Footage showed firefighters battling to put out the blaze with water jets just yards from the terminal building.

Heathrow Airport confirmed that no passengers were onboard the aircraft at the time.

A spokesperson said that the airport fire service had attended to the incident promptly.
