Two passenger jets have been involved in a near miss at Heathrow.

The incident happened at around 12pm yesterday, when an Iberian jet, which was taking off, came close to a United Airlines plane coming into land.

An airport spokeswoman said the matter was not being classed as serious.

She said: "We understand that the incident was not considered serious enough for the Air Accidents Investigation Branch to carry out an investigation, although we do understand that the National Air Traffic Control Service will be undertaking an investigation."
