After the discovery of World War II ordnance, it has thankfully been removed safely. The net result is London City Airport is re-open for business.
According to Robert Sinclair, CEO of London City Airport
“The World War Two ordnance discovered in King George V Dock has been safely removed by the Royal Navy and Met Police. As a result, the exclusion zone has now been lifted and the airport will be open as normal on Tuesday. I would like to thank the Navy, Police and the London Borough of Newham for their professionalism and expertise in bringing this incident to a safe conclusion. Finally, to everyone who has been affected – whether you were due to fly on Monday, were evacuated from your home or had your commute to work disrupted by the DLR closure – thank you for your patience and understanding.”
The airport is open for traffic, and at the time of writing, traffic appears to be operating normally.
