    Another near miss report at Heathrow..


    A "near miss" between a passenger jet and a drone has prompted warnings about safe use of the hobby aircraft.

    An Airbus A320's wing passed 6m (20ft) below a drone hovering at Heathrow, said the Civil Aviation Authority.

    It said drone pilots would face prosecution if they put the safety of other aircraft at risk.

    News about the mid-air encounter comes only days after a Lufthansa jet nearly collided with a drone on the approach to Warsaw's international airport."
