After working the related checklists the crew advised they had problems with the cabin pressure control that they could not do the Atlantic Crossing with, advised they were planning to divert to London Heathrow,EN (UK) and requested to descend to FL240 or so. The aircraft was cleared down to FL230, turned towards Heathrow and landed safely in London Heathrow about 100 minutes later.
