Passengers and staff have reportedly been evacuated from parts of Glasgow Airport as emergency services investigated a package onboard a flight. 

Dozens of emergency services vehicles, including police and ambulance staff were on site and attending to a grounded plane.

Evening Times:

An aircraft at the site had been cordoned off while an inspection took place at the site. 

This is now reported to be a KLM flight which arrived earlier this morning from Amsterdam. 

Concerns have been raised about a package on board the aircraft, and it has been cordoned off. 

Enquiries are said to be ongoing. 

Evening Times:

A spokesperson for Glasgow Airport said: “At approximately 10am today, the airport fire service attended an arriving KLM flight in response to concerns raised over a piece of cargo.

"Enquiries are ongoing to determine the content of the package and the aircraft has been cordoned off pending the outcome of the investigation.

"All other parts of the airport are fully operational.”

However, airport bosses have now confirmed the search has been stood down. 

A spokesperson said: "At approximately 10am today, the airport fire service attended an arriving KLM flight in response to concerns raised over a piece of cargo.

"The incident was stood down at 13.25pm after the package was declared safe by emergency services.”

Multiple reports on social media also suggest that the airport has now been evacuated while this unfolds. 

Roads around the area had also been closed off as a precaution. 

The M8 slip road to Glasgow Airport was one of those affected, but has since reopened. 

A police spokeswoman confirmed officers are in attendance. 

She added: "Police were called around 11.15am on Friday 4 October to a report of a spillage from cargo on board a plane at Glasgow Airport.

"Emergency services are in attendance and the package is being examined.

"An exclusion zone has been put in place as a precaution and enquiries are continuing."
