Members of the London Ambulance Service stand beside their vehicle as passengers queue outside the entrance to London’s City Airport on October 21, 2016 after an evacuation.

London City Airport has reopened after emergency services said there was no evidence of a suspected chemical incident, which had prompted the evacuation of 500 passengers.

“Airport has now reopened,” the airport said on Twitter. “We thank passengers for their patience, access to terminal will be staggered and disruption to flights expected.”
