Additional security check for Paris-London flight caused by false alarm

Armed police individually searched all the passengers while sniffer dogs checked the aircraft

A security incident that delayed a British Airways flight in Paris and led to passengers deplaning was caused by a false alarm, French authorities said.

The Charles de Gaulle Airport confirmed the security search was complete on Flight BA303 and passengers were heading back on board to depart for London.

While passengers waited on the tarmac, security personnel conducted bag searches while sniffer dogs checked the aircraft, according to Anderson.

Earlier the BA flight from Paris was evacuated after passengers were told a "direct threat" had been made towards the aircraft.

Anderson also posted a video showing the British Airways plane on the tarmac, surrounded by officials.

'Apparently an individual has made a direct threat to this aircraft.

Passeners were informed shortly before take off that a "direct threat" had been made against the aiport.

Mr Anderson said: 'Initially the pilot told us there were technical issues.

After an initial search was given the all clear, passengers are being put through X-rays and body scanners by armed officers. We were waiting on the plane for around an hour.

"We were told they are also now searching the aircraft with dogs".

"The safety and security of our customers and crew is always our top priority".

The airline stressed that the additional security checks had been carried out merely as a precaution and added they would never allow a flight to take off unless it was safe to do so.

The security threat came two days after an explosion rocked a crowded London subway vehicle, injuring at least 29, in what officials say was a terror attack.

The UK terror threat level was raised from
severe to critical on Friday following the terror attack at Parsons Green Tube station.
