Manchester Airport terminal evacuated as ‘suspicious bag found’

By Sean Morrison

Part of Manchester Airport was evacuated after a suspicious bag was found in a terminal, with passengers reporting a police swoop.

Crowds of holidaymakers were pictured gathered outside Terminal 2 after staff declared travellers must leave the building.

An evacuation of the terminal was carried out as officers investigate the unattended bag found.

A spokesman for the airport said the evacuation was “standard procedure”.

The airport has since confirmed the bag was declared safe.

“The bag has now been cleared by Greater Manchester Police and we will now begin the process of re-opening the terminal.”

I think the police are being very cautious, I’m happy with this procedure, as long as they can stop any attack
