A man was arrested on suspicion of making a bomb hoax while trying to check in his luggage at Gatwick Airport.

Following the incident, which occurred at around 4pm on Monday (19 February), the 35-year-old from London was told he was not allowed to board his flight and taken into custody to be questioned.

Gatwick Police took to Twitter this morning to remind people that joking about explosives in an airport is not something that will be taken lightly:
