Police are searching a plane at Glasgow Airport after a security incident involving a flight from London.

All flights to and from the terminal were temporarily suspended after the alarm was raised by the crew about an issue at 10.25am.

It involved an easyJet flight from Gatwick Airport.

A Police Scotland spokeswoman said: “All the passengers and crew members have disembarked from a plane which is currently being searched by police following a security alert reported by the crew of a flight at Glasgow Airport.

“Officers and the other emergency services are in attendance.”

Flights have since returned to being operational but police remain at the scene.

There have been no reports of any injuries.

An easyJet spokeswoman said: “easyJet can confirm that passengers on flight EZY883 from London Gatwick to Glasgow were delayed disembarking on arrival in Glasgow, purely as a precaution, due to additional security checks.

“The passengers have been disembarked and taken into the terminal.

“The safety and security of its passengers and crew is always easyJet’s highest priority and we would like to thank passengers for their understanding.”
