This is breaking News, there is no full story yet. it is being reported on BBC News 24 and also the website on breaking news.

This does seem ominous after the London car bombs yesterday.

Im hearing that this car "crashed", through some barrier, and also the police were seen struggling to detain him.

Related to the recent car bombs?

On sky they are showing the event, they reckon the car seemed to have some sort of extra propellant as a few explosions were reported.

And reports of more people injured.

Sky news are saying now that it was a Landrover not a chereokee jeep.

eye witness saying people are injured by an explosion, the airport is being sealed off and the police are not giving much information to the press.

pictuers on sky now showing massive smoke and fire where the terminal is.

"pandemonium" at the airport by eye witness. "Bang in the departure lounge" being staed by witness as definate explosion.

sky saying maybe a cherokee jeep not land rover.

kind regards

Well they are saying it was driven deliberately, with intent to cause harm, just an angry customer???
You know how stressful airports can be, or something more sinister??
There is a heck of a lot of smoke on screen, watching these live pictures.


Witnesses reported hearing a series of loud "bangs" and saw a man on fire.

Sky news has just said that an eyewitness at the airport, who was waiting for her daughter to fly home from Benidorm, says there are casualties at the scene.

And another witness report says that one of the men removed a "gas cylinder" from the car before the police got to him.

Sky News stating strathclyde police had to use considerable force to detain the two men as they resisted arrest. "fighting" with police is how witnesses are describing it.

Airport has now been evacuated and all flights are grounded airport is closed by news 24. 500 metre cordon around airport being evacuated.

My prayers go out to any who may be injured or killed by this.

strathclyde police saying that two cars crashed outside the building then caused problem, which is at odds with eyewitness reports on BBC news 24.

one of the men who was on fire apparently started fighting once he was doused by airport staff. One eyewitness though unsubstantiated staed on BBC that explosives were seen in the car.

Both men are handcuffed and taken away from scene by the police.

BBC now have a story on their site:

Looks like we are watching the same report lol.


Not sure about why these are going so wrong, just does'nt seem like professional terrorists, if indeed this is what they are.

Homegrown terrorists could quite easily think they have the know how to knock up a device that will do damage, but maybe unaware that it can be a bit more complicated than petrol + gas cannisters = explosion.

They are saying that one of the occupants, the one that was on fire was a large man, and was knocked down by a member of the public before being grabbed by the Strathclyde police. It appears that there was a bit of a fight before they were able to get the men.

if part of their plan is for the vehicle to be 'on fire' before they get out of it then I can see it not going to well for this particular group. I mean that's dumb isn't it? I mean they're clearly not suicide bombers as the guy ran off from the first car and these two exited also. Possible Darwin awards in the offing?

reports from N24 say that the explosion came from something form the BACK of the car NOT the petrol tank.

Although 7/7 was a "success", it all went wrong a fortnight later for them so I am leaning towards homegrown terrorists here. Whether it's because of a lack of training or they choose poor materials, I don't know.

This is awful.

With so many attempts over there, it makes sense to be vigilant over here.

Any word on casualties yet?
