ONE of Manchester Airport’s terminals was evacuated due to an ‘unknown incident’ on Thursday, July 7. It has since reopened.

Terminal 3 at Manchester Airport was evacuated this morning (Thursday, July 7) after videos emerged of passengers leaving the area.

Reports of special ops police officers arriving with guns began circulating on social media.

One Twitter user @ldtnubs shared a video of people leaving through the opened barriers.

The tannoy system can be heard in the video, with the voice calling for the “immediate evacuation”.

“Attention please, an incident has arisen that necessitates the immediate evacuation of this area,” it said.

“Please leave by the nearest available exit.”

According to reports at the airport, the terminal has been reopened and people are being allowed back in, although they now face heavy queues.

One Twitter user wrote: “Manchester Airport Terminal 3 was evacuated about an hour ago and queues for security are now extending into the multi-story car park.”
