London City Airport Shut Down Over Discovery Of Unexploded WW2 Bomb

London City Airport has been closed after the discovery of an unexploded Second World War bomb......



All flights into and out of the airport, in east London, will be stopped today after the device was found nearby in the River Thames on Sunday.


The closure led to the cancellation of more than 100 departures and affected up to 16,000 passengers, according to a spokeswoman.


The device was discovered at the George VDock at about 5am on Sunday during planned work at the airport. Newham Council said the bomb was a German 500kg fused device and warned work to deal with it would last until Tuesday.

 The Metropolitan Police said the airport was shut at 10pm, as officers worked with the Royal Navy to remove the bomb.

A 700ft (214-metre) exclusion zone was put in place on Sunday evening to ensure the device could be dealt with safely.People living inside the zone were evacuated from their homes overnight, while police said a number of road cordons have been put in place in Newham.

Passengers were urged not to travel to the airport on Monday and advised to contact their airline.
