Operations resume at London City Airport

The London City Airport has reopened following the World War II bomb which was found nearby was safely removed from the River Thames.

Authorities say it is now business as the objects have been successfully removed from the area.

“Morning, we’re back to business as usual here at LCY! Let us know if we can help you on your journey,”- the LCY confirmed in a public message on Twitter via @LondonCityAir its official handle.

All flights to and from the airport were canceled on Monday after the half-tonne ordnance was found at the nearby George V Dock in east London, and a 200-metre exclusion zone was also put in place.

“The World War Two ordnance discovered in King George V Dock has been safely removed by the Royal Navy and Met Police,” Robert Sinclair, CEO of London City Airport said in a statement.

“As a result, the exclusion zone has now been lifted and the airport will be open as normal on Tuesday.”
