Buying a pay as you go SIM card in Heathrow terminal 5?

Hello
I need to buy a hassle free SIM card as soon as I land in Heathrow. Is this available at T5 at Heathrow, if so which company? I already have a mobile phone I can use, so I just need the SIM card.

Thanks so much

No personal experience, but BHRC Tourist Service shop at Terminal 5 arrivals (after the customs) sell SIM cards.

WH Smith - newsagent, book and magazine shop - usually sell them too.

Thanks Alec, this is very helpful. I'll hit both places when I arrive.

I have one from Three which worked immediately, and no hassle. It's 15 pounds I think for a month's worth of internet and local calls. Check their website to see it it's available at LHR. Other providers offer a similar service, but I have only used Three.

Thanks Tulips.
I just came back from my trip. It is much cheaper to buy from WHSmith. They have all kinds for 2 pounds for the sim, then you have to buy a top-up voucher.
The airport information was much more expensive.
