WWII bomb forces closure of London City Airport

Thousands of passengers had their flights and trains cancelled today – after a 500kg world war two bomb was found in the river Thames.

London City airport was forced to close and families living within an exclusion zone have been evacuated from their homes as experts from the Royal Navy and police try to remove the device.

And they’ll be working through the night to minimise any disruption as Jane Dodge reports.
