London City Airport has been closed after the discovery of an unexploded Second World War bomb, affecting tens of thousands of passengers.

All flights into and out of the airport, in east London, will be stopped on Monday after the device was found nearby in the River Thames on Sunday.

The closure led to the cancellation of more than 100 departures and was affecting up to 16,000 passengers, according to a spokeswoman.

The device was discovered at the George V Dock at about 5am on Sunday during planned work at the airport.

Newham Council said the bomb was a German 500kg fused device and warned work to deal with it would last until Tuesday.

The Metropolitan Police said the airport was shut at 10pm, as officers worked with the Royal Navy to remove the bomb.

Not necessarily. It's been there for over 70 years and didn't explode, plus it's not the only one.
Several others are still all over and undiscovered

I understand bombs  were dropped on London during the 2nd world war for 57 CONSECUTIVE NIGHTS!

Well as usual the authorities have ACTED FAST.

They closed the airport and SET UP temporary accommodation for those who reside in the area for those who WISH to leave their homes.

The army is on board ready to transport the bomb to a safe place in order to DETONATE it.

We can learn a lot from BEING PREPARED and BEING READY to PROTECT the lives of our CITIZENS.
