Glasgow Airport reopens after yesterday's terror attack

Glasgow Airport's main terminal reopened to travellers today - almost 24 hours after a terrorist attack.

The car bomb attack involved a 4x4 - apparently packed with gas canisters - being rammed into the front of the main terminal building and set alight.

The airport was closed to all travellers in the aftermath of the incident, which took place at about 3.15pm on Saturday.

Earlier today airport bosses began a phased opening of the airport, with passengers initially checking in in the smaller T2 terminal.

Shortly after 3pm today the main terminal building was re-opened - despite the car still being there.

The area around the vehicle was cordoned off as forensic tests were carried out.

And with most of the main forecourt still cordoned off, travellers were being directed into the terminal building via a side entrance.
