Suspicious package found in British airport as terror alert grounds planes in U.S. - drummer - 10-29-2010


A suspicious package today sparked a security alert at a UK airport and there were further terror warnings at two airports in the U.S.

A cordon was thrown around an area of East Midlands Airport following the discovery of a 'suspect device' at a distribution centre.

Simultaneously, three planes in the U.S. were grounded after reports that there may be explosives onboard.

The FBI said that all three of the jets had flown to the U.S. from Europe - one from Britain, another from Germany and the third from France.

It is unclear what connection, if any, the planes have.

A 767 which had taken off from East Midlands Airport near Nottingham arrived at New Jersey's Newark Airport.

A Boeing 767 came from Paris, France and an MD-11 from Cologne, Germany both landed safely in Philadelphia.

All three were cargo planes in operation for the parcel company UPS.

Security services in the U.S. were this afternoon conducting detailed searches of the cargo planes at Newark Liberty International Airport and Philadelphia International Airport.

The planes have been isolated from other aircraft.

A spokesman for the Transport Security Administration in the U.S. said: 'Out of an abundance of caution the planes were moved to a remote location where they are being met by law enforcement officials and swept.'

A spokesman for the Foreign Office in the UK said the department was 'aware of the incident' at East Midlands Airport.

'It is a matter for the police,' she said. 'The Department for Transport is taking the lead on this.'

Police have also cordoned off an area of New York, the Bronx, after a suspicious package was found there. It is not known if there is any link with the air alerts.

Police evacuated the distribution centre at East Midlands Airport after a package was discovered in the early hours today.

Officers announced there was no threat shortly before 10am but put cordons back up again at about 2pm.

A police spokeswoman said: 'The package is being re-examined as a precaution and as such the cordons that were originally put in place have been reinstated.

'This has meant that a freight distribution building and a number of offices have been closed together with internal airport roads - Beverley Road and Argosy Road.

'The airport continues to operate as normal and has been throughout.

'The safety of the public and emergency personnel remains our priority and we are working closely with the airport and the emergency services.'

A Metropolitan Police spokesman said earlier reports that a suspected bomb has been found on a flight in London were inaccurate.

Reports in the United States said a suspicious toner cartridge was found on a cargo plane that landed in London on a flight from Yemen bound for Chicago.

It has been claimed that tests found no traces of explosives.

A Department for Transport spokesman said: 'We are not aware of anything in London. There is a police operation ongoing at East Midlands airport.'

Multiple objectives include, but are not limited to, pre-election fear mongering, Yemeni/Arab demonization, how dare you criticize our demand for airport scanners and other corporate crony security measures, desperation for nooze....
