A plane carrying diver Tom Daley has had to make an emergency landing in Russia after "a technical issue". He and his partner Dustin Lance Black were among 301 people aboard a Virgin Atlantic Airbus A340 which had to put down in the Siberian city of Irkutsk, on a flight from Shanghai to London.
Daley was returning after competing in the world diving championships in Shanghai.
There were 286 passengers aboard, including three infants, as well as three flight deck crew and 12 cabin crew.
