Lon­don City Air­port ter­mi­nal was cleared in a “chem­i­cal scare” that left two need­ing hos­pi­tal treat­ment for breath­ing dif­fi­cul­ties while 26 were treated in to­tal.

Planes were grounded or di­verted for sev­eral hours as fire bri­gade of­fi­cers scoured the Dock­lands air­port look­ing for the source.

Later, a CS gas can­is­ter was found and po­lice up­graded the in­ci­dent to a po­ten­tial ter­ror at­tack.

Po­lice ar­rested a 25-year-old at a home in east Lon­don on Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 22, on sus­pi­cion of us­ing a nox­ious sub­stance to cause se­ri­ous dam­age.
