London's Heathrow airport has been snarled by an accident involving a British Airways passenger jet. The plane received considerable damage when it landed short of the runway after flying to London from Beijing this morning.

The craft is surrounded on the tarmac by emergency vehicles. The passenger chutes deployed and there are no reports of injuries.

The mishap has forced Britain's Prime Minister Gordon Brown to delay his flight to China from Heathrow.

One pilot says all departures and arrivals have been suspended for the time being for safety reasons because all the airports' emergency crews were responding to the incident.
