BA flight aborts landing after two helicopters fail to respond to Air Traffic Control

A British Airways flight aborted landing following a couple of attempts on Thursday afternoon.

GBC understands the landing was aborted because of two helicopters in Gibraltar airspace which were not communicating with Air Traffic Control.  We are awaiting comment from the MOD which is responsible for air traffic control.

The Plane eventually landed ten minutes later.
