London City Airport will be open as normal on Tuesday 13 February, following the safe removal of a World War Two ordnance from the dock.
Robert Sinclair, CEO of London City Airport said: “The World War Two ordnance discovered in King George V Dock has been safely removed by the Royal Navy and Met Police. As a result, the exclusion zone has now been lifted and the airport will be open as normal on Tuesday. I would like to thank the Navy, Police and the London Borough of Newham for their professionalism and expertise in bringing this incident to a safe conclusion. Finally, to everyone who has been affected – whether you were due to fly today, were evacuated from your home or had your commute to work disrupted by the DLR closure – thank you for your patience and understanding.”
