A Virgin Atlantic passenger plane has touched down safely at London’s Gatwick airport on Monday after a landing gear fault forced the US-bound plane to turn around.

“Flight VS43 has returned to London Gatwick due to a technical issue with one of the landing gears,” Virgin Atlantic said in a statement.

A spokesperson says the passengers will be taken off the airplane and the craft will be checked as a matter of routine.
