Two British Airways pilots who were suspended after a five-year- old girl was seen in the cockpit of a London-bound jet have been cleared of any wrongdoing, it was announced yesterday.

Captain Phil Higton and his co-pilot underwent an internal investigation after allegations that Emily Pickersgill pushed buttons on the flight deck of a Boeing 757.

"The two pilots have been cleared of allegations that they breached company safety regulations," said BA. It was satisfied passengers were not in danger on the August 16 flight from Nice.
