The airport has advised all passengers not to travel to the airport and to contact their airline for further information.

An airport in London has been shut down following the discovery of a World War II bomb found nearby in the River Thames. Properties within the exclusion zone are being evacuated and trains on the Docklands light railway between Pontoon Dock and Woolwich Arsenal have been suspended. Police have confirmed families who were evacuated from around the site can return to their homes after the device was moved away from the affected area.

"Work will not start on lifting and removing the device until the initial 214-metre zone is clear".

During the Blitz (the 1940-41 German bombing campaign), London's East End was severely hit by raids.

London City Airport has been closed after an unexploded World War Two bomb was found in the River Thames nearby.

"While we endeavour to progess the operation as quickly as possible and minimise disruption, it is important that all of the necessary steps and precautions are taken to ensure it is dealt with safely", a spokesperson said.

At about 10pm last night, Met Police and the Royal Navy made a decision to implement a 214-metre exclusion zone around the airport.

NASA probe "New Horizons" snaps farthest-ever photo from Earth
NASA says Voyager 1's cameras were turned off after that, so its photography record has been unchallenged for more than 27 years. This image is, for now, one of the farthest pictures from Earth ever captured by a spacecraft.

"I recognise this is causing inconvenience for our passengers, and in particular some of our local residents". "During the Blitz, German planes dropped almost 30,000 bombs on London in just three months", he notes.

All flights were cancelled and the airport has been closed all day which has "affected up to 16,000 passengers" according to a BBC report.

Mayor of London Sadiq Khan said on Twitter that the Metropolitan Police and the Royal Navy were working in conjunction to remove the bomb.

Due to the airport's limited runway length, only mid-range airliners are allowed to operate into London City.
