Clearing customs question???

Hello all-
My daughter flies home from South Africa this week to the U.S. She has an 11 hr layover in London. She has been there before so knows where she wants to go & how to get there. Does anyone know if she has to clear customs in London & recheck her bags or should they go straight thru to Chicago for her giving her more time in London?? She is also wishing to put her carry on in a locker in the airport before she leaves. ( also unsure of locker location in Heathrow ) She is aware she will have to go through security again. She will be flying British Airways . Thanks for any tips.

No need to collect and re-check bags. She would need to go through immigration and customs to leave the airport though.

There are no lockers at Heathrow Airport. There are manned left luggage facilities though.
