London City to reopen after removal of WW2 bomb

London City Airport will reopen today after the removal of a Second World War bomb that shut the airport throughout yesterday.

The device was removed by the Royal Navy and transported away from the airport down the river Thames where it was due to be destroyed by a controlled explosion.

The Docklands airport confirmed a 214-metre exclusion zone around the airport imposed after the bomb was discovered at the King George V Dock, had been lifted.

No flights left London City yesterday affecting 16,000 travellers but the airport said it would be “business as usual” today.
