    Yoda,

    The original article has been updated. On the ITV site it is stated the airport has reopened. As regards details of the bomb, the information will be supplied by the Metropolitan Police Press Office. As they can't even get the cordon distance (214 metres) correct, any identity of the bomb should be treated with caution.
