LONDON (AFP) - Four passengers were injured after a Swiss airlines plane had to abandon take-off because of an engine failure at London's City Airport on Thursday, officials said.

The flight, which was carrying 74 passengers and four crew, was due to travel to Geneva.

"The pilots rejected take-off at low speed due to an engine problem and subsequently evacuated passengers and crew safely," a Swiss spokeswoman told AFP.

The airline said four passengers "received on-site treatment by the ambulance services for minor injuries".
