Glasgow Airport has reopened following a police incident that saw passengers evacuated and check in terminals at the airport closed.

Parts of the airport were closed after police were called just after 6am following concern over an item in a passenger's bag – but officers have now been stood down and passengers are now being welcomed back into the terminal after a six hour wait.

Two fire crews were dispatched to the scene with a Royal Navy bomb disposal unit also sent to the scene but police confirmed the suspicious item was deemed to pose no risk to the public and was “innocent in nature”.

Passengers were asked to move into the multi-level parking structure, with check-in and central search areas closed due to the ongoing incident which saw parts of the airport close for six hours.
