Man detained at Gatwick Airport as police deal with incident


A man has been detained at Gatwick Airport as police deal with an incident.

Sussex Police said a cordon was put in place at the drop-off parking area for the north terminal as a precaution.

One man tweeted that he was locked in a Premier Inn at the airport due to the incident.

“Much of the terminal north closed, police dealing with suspect car parked outside. Couple of hours now,” he said.

A number of social media users reported issues with the airport’s shuttle bus, but it appears that services are now running again.

A short time later, police said the cordon had been stood down, and the incident was not treated as terror-related.

“We would like to thank the public for their patience and understanding while we dealt with the matter,” the force said in a statement.
