Over 120 dead so far
Gatwicks North terminal has been closed most of the day for a security alert. A 41 yr old French bloke is in custody, seems they found a handgun in his baggage. Which must be hand baggage as handguns can be carried in checked baggage.
But imagine an overnight flight from say Florida or Mexico, and when you land you are held in Arrivals hall most of the day, can't exit as the terminal is closed
Jeez, what a nightmare. Ok I accept that security alerts must take some sort of priority, but to shut the terminal for most of the day? Surely they can sort it out a bit quicker than that?
