London airport to reopen following bomb discovery


London City Airport will reopen today, February 13, after a 500kg Second World War bomb found there was safely moved, BBC reports.

The device was discovered at the King George V Dock on Sunday during planned work at the east London airport.

All flights were cancelled yesterday as an exclusion zone was put in place, closing the airport and affecting up to 16,000 passengers.

The bomb will be detonated at a secure location this morning.

Some road and bridge closures will be in place as the bomb is moved for disposal.
