One of Manchester Airport’s 3 terminals has been closed this evening, with flights departing

from Terminal 2 said to be moving to Terminal 1 or 3. It follows the discovery of a suspicious

package within the terminal.

Greater Manchester Police were called to the scene at around 3.30PM. The suspicious item has

been cordoned off, with the bomb squad now in attendance to make an evaluation. Terminal 2

was subject to a “controlled evacuation” according to a GMP spokesperson. The airport said

such an evacuation was “standard procedure”

Passengers took to social media when security was stepped up this afternoon, but travellers felt

they weren’t being informed of the situation.
