The flight was due to land in Austin at 16.00 UTC but the crew had to divert to Glasgow due to a medical emergency.

Sadly, a man died on board the flight. The family of the passenger was also on board the aircraft.

The body remained in Glasgow but the Boeing 777-300ER (reg. G-STBH) returned few hours later to London Heathrow. The flight was cancelled.
