The evacuation came amid heightened security after attacks in Paris left more than 120 people dead on Friday and Britain’s Prime Minister David Cameron convened a meeting of his government’s emergency response committee.

Britain’s terrorism threat level stands at “severe”, the second highest category which means a militant attack is considered highly likely.

Gatwick airport is the country’s second busiest airport and is situated about 30 miles south of London.
