Unexploded Bomb Closes Airport

An unexploded World War II bomb caused London City airport to be closed earlier today.

The airport and the area's DLR link were both closed down for several hours at this morning after the device was found on a building site at Seagull Lane, Canning Town.

The bomb has since been moved to wasteland where it will be exploded. The airport is back up and running, although there are continuing delays.
