Ryder taken ill on flight

American actress Winona Ryder was taken to hospital after becoming ill on a flight to London.

A spokesman for Hillingdon Hospital in Uxbridge, west London, said the 37-year-old was treated by medics directly off the plane at Heathrow Airport.

A spokesman for British Airways said: “The captain of BA282, which was travelling from LA to Heathrow, requested a priority landing as a female passenger required medical attention.

BA also said their crew looked after her as much as they could whilst on board, and passenger service staff accompanied her to hospital.
