A Virgin Atlantic flight to New York was forced to return to Heathrow Airport after a laser beam was pointed at the plane - prompting urgent action in the cockpit, said British police.

The police were notified that a laser was aimed at a commercial aircraft that had taken off from Heathrow on Sunday evening, said a police spokesman.

Audio of the plane's exchange with air traffic control describes one of the pilots having a "medical issue" following the incident, which occurred "six or seven miles" west of Heathrow, writes Sky News.

- The decision to turn the plane were taken by both pilots after one of them felt unwell after the incident, writes the airline, Virgin Atlantic, in a statement.

The plane flew over Ireland when the pilots asked to return.

It is not uncommon in the UK that people are aiming laser pointers at aircraft. Every year there are reports of hundreds of incidents.
