By edg - Posted on 18 March 2011

Edinburgh Airport is now "back to normal" following a bomb alert earlier this morning.

The airport was closed after a suspicious package was discovered around 11.30am.

"We're closed until 3pm due to an ongoing incident. Please do not travel to the airport as the roads are closed. We'll update when we can," the Airport tweeted.

The airport was closed for around an hour before the incident was stood down.

"Our incident has been stood down. We are now re-opening the terminal. Thank you for your patience," the Airport reported on its Twitter feed, followed shortly by:

"The roads on approach to the airport have now been re-opened. Thank you for your patience."

Just under an hour ago, the Airport tweeted: "Everything is back to normal at Edinburgh Airport. Thank you for your patience today."
