Susan Boyle involved in distressed police incident at Heathrow

London — Susan Boyle's spokesperson says the singer is at home and fine after an incident involving the police at London's Heathrow Airport.

British media reported that the I Dreamed a Dream singer was led away by officers after creating a disturbance at the airport on Monday.

London's Metropolitan Police said officers were called "around 13:20 (12:20 GMT) on Monday to a lounge in Terminal 5, Heathrow to reports of a distressed woman. Officers attended and spoke with the woman".

Spokesperson Nicola Phillips said Boyle was at home in Scotland on Tuesday and "she is fine".

The 55-year-old singer was diagnosed with Asperger's a few years ago, and Phillips said the syndrome had "a huge part to play in the situation".
