A PASSENGER jet was placed on lockdown at Glasgow Airport after a “suspicious” spillage from cargo sparked a security scare.
Around 20 fire crews descended on the runway this morning with police and ambulances also in attendance during the alert.
A section of the airport was locked down while cops investigated the mystery package on board the KLM flight.
It is understood the plane arrived from Amsterdam this morning.
Horrified passengers said they were led away in “groups of eight” to use the toilet as they waited in a cordoned-off area of the airport.
The alert was sparked around 10am before being stood down shortly before 1.30pm when the package was cleared as safe.
The rest of the airport continued to run as normal despite some delays on the M8 motorway as an exit was closed off.
A spokesman for Glasgow Airport said: “At approximately 10am today, the airport fire service attended an arriving KLM flight in response to concerns raised over a piece of cargo.
