British Airways passengers were left stuck without their luggage after a pipe burst in Heathrow Terminal 5 – drenching their bags in sewage.

About 100 suitcases were covered in the raw filth when a pipe in the sewage system burst in Terminal 5’s baggage hold on Monday.

Many passengers were still waiting to be reunited with their suitcases today after the airport sent them off to be cleaned.

A source told The Sun: ‘The smell was absolutely foul, as was the mood of the passengers who had to leave without their bags.’

It has been suggested the leak could be linked to the Terminal being built on a former sludge works.

A spokesman for the airport operator, BAA Heathrow, said: ‘There was a leak from the sewage system in the baggage area of Terminal 5 on Monday which affected around a hundred bags.

‘We appreciate this will be upsetting for passengers. The bags have now been cleaned and are being reunited with their owners.’

British Airways also apologized to its passengers for the incident and any inconvenience caused.
