Sussex Police have arrested a man after an incident at Gatwick Airport. The site's North Terminal was evacuated this morning, and police called at 9.30am after 'suspicious actions' by a man who discarded an item at the airport.
Bomb disposal experts were called to the scene as a precautionary measure, to investigate the item.
"At this time, we are investigating the circumstances of the incident and it is too early to say what the item may be. However, given the events in Paris on Friday evening, there is heightened awareness around any such incident and it is best that we treat the matter in all seriousness.
"We are aware that there is concern about what has happened in France, but the general threat level remains the same and people should be aware as usual of anyone acting suspiciously."
Due to an incident - the North Terminal has been evacuated as a precautionary measure. Extra staff on-site looking after passenger welfare
There's still no agreement where a new crossing over the Thames should be built. Most drivers agree - one is certainly needed - as they endure long delays between Dartford and Thurrock.
But faced with a range of options from East London to Gravesend and Tilbury - the arguments about where the bridge and its approach roads should go, have continued
As Nashreen Issa reports, the Government is due to make a decision early next year.

Is it the end for hopes of reopening Manston Airport? Last night, councillors from Thanet District Council - elected earlier this year on a promise to get planes flying again, admitted that any reopening of the airport was not going to happen any time soon.
Specifically, a Compulsory Purchase Order, or plans to use a compulsory purchase of the airfield, were scrapped. The same councillors told us today, that they had not abandoned their vision - but were exploring new options.
Meanwhile, 18 months after the place was mothballed, airport developers say the council's wasting time and money. Derek Johnson has our report.
The interviewees are: Cllr Chris Wells, Leader, Thanet District Council, UKIP; Niall Lawlor from RiverOak Investments; Ray Mallon, spokesman for Stone Hill Park owners Trevor Cartner and Chris Musgrave.
The investment firm that had been in negotiations with Thanet District Council over a Compulsory Purchase Order of the Manston Airport site, has expressed its disappointment that the plan has been shelved.
Last night councillors from Thanet District Council met. They said they had postponed plans to buy and reopen the former airport in Kent. They added that the decision followed legal advice that their proposals were not financially sound.
Niall Lawlor from RiverOak Investment Corp. said the firm is going to carry on pushing for the project to go ahead.
Meanwhile the current owners of the airport say they will press ahead with plans for a housing and business development.
It is three months after Highways England began a trial of new, more 'friendly' road signs at major roadworks in the south east - the signs are now being removed.
The transport bosses said they thought that the signs would make drivers happier, or at least less frustrated, if they were stuck in roadworks. The slogans were meant to show a more 'customer friendly' approach.
However, as our Transport Correspondent Mike Pearse reports - not everyone was convinced.
The interviewee is Simon Jones, Southern Director for Highways England.
Thanet District Council has postponed plans to buy and re-open the former Manston Airport site in Kent.
Councillors met last night having had legal advice that their proposals were not financially sound. But executives from RiverOak, a US investment corporation which backs the reopening of the airport, say they're determined to carry on with their plans.
Highways England today denied reports it was sending in the bailiffs to 150,000 drivers who have failed to pay tolls at the Dartford Crossing.
Officials say no such proceedings have been started, but admit the measure could be used if motorists persistently refuse to pay to cross.
They say warning letters are sent out in the first instance and court action would be a last resort but say that is some way off.
Highways England say it is only fair that all drivers pay the tolls but they want to encourage drivers to use the proper method before using the legal process.
The Dart Charge was introduced last year - it involves payment being made in an electronic way rather than at the time of crossing. The barriers were removed earlier this year.
Drivers must pay for using the Dartford Crossing between 6am and 10pm. The fee, which can be up to £6 a time, must be paid by midnight on the day after crossing.
The penalty charge is £70 and must be paid within 28 days. It’s reduced to £35 if you pay within 14 days and increased to £105 if you don’t pay.
