LONDON (Reuters) - Flights at Manchester airport returned to normal on Friday after police gave the all clear following a bomb scare which had closed one of its terminals for the morning.

A suspect package had been discovered during luggage security checks in terminal one, forcing the evacuation of the area. The airport's other two terminals remained open during the scare.

"The package was then examined by bomb disposal officers and it was confirmed that it posed no threat to the public," police said in a statement.
