London City Airport Scraps Monday Flights As WW2 Bomb Found


London City Airport, an important hub for business travelers, canceled all flights on Monday after the discovery nearby of an unexploded World War II bomb.

The ordnance was found in the River Thames early Sunday during planned development work at the airport, east of the Canary Wharf financial district. Royal Navy specialists established an exclusion zone of more than 200 meters (650 feet) to handle the situation, the Metropolitan Police said in a statement.
