Luton Airport Security Alert

A man's been charged with behaviour likely to endanger an aircraft, following an incident at Luton Airport on Friday.

Emergency services were called after a suspicious substance - which turned out to be cleaning fluid - was found leaking from a bag in the baggage area.

A man was arrested on Friday and 21-year-old Dariuz Tkaczyk, from Slough, has now been charged.

Police and fire crews, some wearing protective suits, arrived at the airport shortly after 9am. 16 flights were delayed and check-in was suspended for a number of hours.

According to the airport the fluid had leaked onto a number of other bags that were due to go on a Monarch flight bound for Faro resulting in the flight being grounded for around 4 hours. According to the airline all passengers were eventually let off the plane at 10:30am.

Ambulance crews treated several passengers for stinging in their eyes but there were no major causalities.
