London Luton airport closed following discovery of suspicious package

London Luton airport was closed on Monday after security officials observed a suspicious item in a passenger’s hand luggage and raised the alarm at 1:36 pm. At least 50 flights were canceled and many others were delayed. It’s thought that it all started because of a hair dryer.

Passengers were left waiting on planes and approximately 2,000 people were evacuated from the airport. Thirteen flights were diverted to Birmingham, Gatwick, and Stansted. Roads nearby were closed as well. A bomb disposal team along with its robot performed a controlled explosion at 5:15 pm and the airport reopened shortly after that. No arrests were made as a result of the scare.
