A plane operated by the firm involved in a Greek air disaster had to be diverted from Luton to Stansted airport after the pilot feared a problem.

The Helios Airways Boeing 737, with 177 passengers on board, made a safe landing at Stansted in Essex on Friday.

Stansted Airport said: "The pilot thought he had a flaps problem but the aircraft landed all right."

Last Sunday, 121 passengers and crew aboard Flight 522 died when the Helios plane crashed outside Athens.
