UK City Airport shut immediately

London City Airport

A spokesman for the airport added: "All passengers due to travel from London City on Monday are advised to contact their airline for further information".

Travel around one of London's major airports has been plunged into chaos after the discovery of an unexploded World War II bomb.

The airport was shut at 22:00 and the Met said it was working with the Royal Navy to remove the device.

In a statement, the Met said: "The ordnance was discovered as part of pre-planned work at London City Airport and reported to the police at 05:06hrs on Sunday, 11 February. As a result, London City Airport is now closed", said the London City Airport in an official statement.

The airport authorities have urged all passengers to avoid travelling to the facility, through a Twitter post.

Metropolitan police were called after the bomb was revealed. It is located in the East of London near the Canary Wharf business district. The zone was made into exclusion area at 2200 GMT.

The ordnance was discovered during planned development work at the airport.

Royal Navy specialists established an exclusion zone of more than 200 meters (650 feet) to handle the situation, the Metropolitan Police said in a statement. Now let's hope the situation is dealt with immediately & the public doesn't suffer.
