Another French Gunman Arrested at Gatwick Airport

Frenchman arrested at Gatwick threw a gun into a bin as he fled easyJet check-in while being chased by police who shouted to passengers 'get down, get down' 

A Frenchman caused chaos at Gatwick Airport this morning after approaching an easyJet check-in desk with a gun.

Hundreds of passengers were evacuated after the 41-year-old man fled and threw the firearm into a rubbish bin at the North Terminal following a disagreement with staff.

Armed police rushed to restrain the man and were said to have shouted 'get down, get down' to travellers who were desperately trying to work out what was going on.

Staff were forced to close the busy terminal for six hours as bomb disposal experts carried out a small controlled explosion.
