    A British Airways steward has died after catching malaria in Africa.

    The woman became ill after working on a long haul flight from Heathrow to Ghana’s capital Accra.

    She is believed to have been staying at a hotel in the city with other BA cabin crew members when she started showing signs of the disease.

    A major internal investigation is under way into how the woman - who has not been named - contracted the illness.

    All BA air crew flying to the West African country are given anti malarial tablets and medical advice about how to protect themselves while working abroad.
