Welcome to Gander
A Virgin Atlantic flight from Heathrow to New York encounters a problem and makes an unanticipated landing. From the comments:
"Inconvenient yes, but newsworthy a definate no. Sounds like the crew did all the right things. Whilst Gander is remote and small, all aircraft transiting the North Atlantic will contact Gander to enter or exit the North Atlantic Tracks (as they do Shannon and Prestick on the east side of the sea) - as such some of the best ATC support available."
