Thousands of passengers were briefly evacuated from Adelaide Airport early Wednesday afternoon.

The Australian Federal Police (AFP) conducted a sweep of the concourse and gates due to a fault with security screening. During the sweep the evacuated passengers were kept within the check-in area. The fault saw a “small number” of people enter the concourse without being properly screened, and staff not being able to find those that got through.

The evacuation was expected to cause delays throughout the rest of the day.
