Luton Airport is expected to return to normal service this morning after a major security scare caused chaos for holidaymakers.
The airport was evacuated yesterday, with all flights suspended and roads shut following the discovery of a suspicious item in the security search area.
Bomb disposal experts carried out a controlled explosion before customers were allowed to return to the terminal almost four hours later.
"We are working hard throughout the night and into tomorrow morning when we expect operations to return to normal," a spokesman for the airport said.
