London City Airport has reopened after an unexploded 500 kilogram World War Two bomb was safely moved from the area. The device was discovered at the King George V Dock on Sunday during planned work at the east London airport.

All flights were cancelled yesterday after an exclusion zone was put in place, with the closure affecting up to 16,000 passengers and nearby residents being evacuated from their homes. Royal Navy divers worked through the night to move the bomb. London City Airport’s Chief executive Robert Sinclair said, it would be business as usual today.
