French man held as suspected firearm found at Gatwick Airport

A man from France has been arrested after what appears to have been a firearm was found at Gatwick Airport.
The 41-year-old, from Vendome, was detained after he discarded an item in a bin at the North Terminal.
The terminal was then evacuated on the landside, before passport control, as a precautionary measure at 09:30 GMT.
Explosive ordnance disposal units investigated the item and carried out a small controlled explosion. The North Terminal was closed for six hours.
Sussex Police said "personal items and what appears to be a firearm" were recovered and removed for forensic examination.
A spokesman said the viability of the weapon had yet to be established.
