Gatwick Airport’s North Terminal was evacuated “for the protection of the public” this morning after a suspicious item was found.

Hundreds of people were photographed standing outside the airport in the rain after being told to leave the airport at around 10am.

Witnesses said armed police were arresting a man believed to have a gun in his bag.

It's too early to tell if this is connected to the terrible events of last night in Paris. Details are a little thin on the ground as to what kind of firearm, which way the person was travelling and other important nuggets of info. There is obviously heightened security with recent events. It will be interesting to see if it's actually an antiques dealer transporting a piece for someone or a bona-fide member of Daesh that could help shed some light on things...

It could be a deactivated one or even a grenade style lighter, the problem is that until they know its safe they have to assume its live and go boom at a moments notice so they have procedures in place.

this site are saying it was Venezuela man but i would expect them to down play it so as to not cause panic,
its just a little bit close in regards to the french hand granade attacks.

Its only a theory but I think some sort of reporting restriction has been placed on this.

Mainstream news were reporting this as it broke but now, not a dicky bird. Also, watching the Twitter feeds and some people are complaining to @bbc @sky and @lbc asking why they have removed all tweets relating to it.

Yeah, they've been telling us that since 2001 and before. How did we ever cope during the blitz.

Sky News



A 41-year-old Frenchman has been arrested after a suspected firearm was found at Gatwick Airport.


Very quiet all day, but as said above, probably for security reasons.
