Stansted Airport said: “Due to the discovery of an unattended bag a part of the terminal was cordoned off while police carried out checks on the item.

“The item was found not to be suspicious and the incident stood down. Flights continue to operate as normal.

“We apologise for the inconvenience caused by the recent part-evacuation. The safety of passengers remains our highest priority.”

The airport has now reopened.
