British Airways flight BA274 from Las Vegas, America to London, UK has landed in Montreal, Canada, after reports of a bomb threat.

The plane was carrying over 300 people and police are now on site:

British Airways said:

Our flight from Las Vegas to Heathrow landed safely this morning at Montreal and customers left the aircraft as normal after the captain took the decision to divert the aircraft as a precaution.

We are looking after the customers and will provide hotel rooms for them and will rebook them to other flights as soon as we can.

We are working with the Canadian authorities and giving them our fullest support.

However, the airline would not comment on the bomb threat as they said "We never discuss matters of operational security. The safety and security of our customers, crew and aircraft are our highest priorities at all times."
