The London City Airport has been closed after a Second World War-era bomb was found nearby in the Thames River, the authorities announced on Monday.
The airport was shut at 10 p.m., and the Met said that it was working with the Royal Navy to remove the device.
Passengers have been asked not to travel to the airport as the terminal is closed and to contact their airline, the BBC reported.
Airlines using London City Airport include British Airways, Flybe, CityJet, KLM and Lufthansa, with flights to domestic and European city destinations.
The Met Police said a 214-metre exclusion zone had been set up and properties inside were evacuated.
