The pilots used oxygen masks and witnesses claimed the fumes filling the cockpit smelt of “electrical burning”.

The Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner (reg. G-ZBKA) set off from London Heathrow at 6.30pm on Wednesday and was due to land in Calgary at 8.15pm local time.

Local fire crews were seen entering the plane after all passengers had been evacuated to check for a possible fire.
