A man armed with two kitchen knives has been arrested at Gatwick Airport.
The area was secured and he was challenged by armed police officers who used a Taser to detain him. He was arrested on suspicion of possessing offensive weapons and making threats to kill. Police said it was not being treated as terrorist-related.
Police said the man, from Crawley, West Sussex, was not a travelling passenger. Gatwick Airport said the terminal’s baggage reclaim area was temporarily evacuated as a precaution.
Supt Justin Burtenshaw, from Sussex Police, said: “This incident was dealt with swiftly and no members of the public or police were harmed.”
