Manchester Airport evacuated after 'suspect item' found

Suspicious bag causes evacuation at Manchester Airport Terminal Three

The airport said on its Twitter account the evacuation was only at one terminal and passengers were being sent to other terminals to board their planes. Passengers using T1 and T2 should travel as normal.

The terminal was shut down before a full search was launched, according to people there. People who were due to fly from terminal three have been advised to go to terminal one for more information.

Greater Manchester Police have confirmed that they are in attendance and that the bomb squad had been called.

It is the smallest terminal at Manchester Airport and is used for domestic flights as well as some flights to the U.S. and Europe.

Terminal 3 at the airport has been cleared after a suspicious bag was spotted shortly before 10 am.

Terminal 3 at the airport was evacuated earlier this morning over concerns into regard to a bag. The terminal re-opened shortly after the announcement, sending hundreds of passengers rushing for their bags - or simply headed outside.

It comes after holidaymakers faced chaos yesterday when the airport's Terminal 1 was evacuated due to a major leak.
