A man has been arrested at Gatwick Airport and the North Terminal has been evacuated as a precautionary measure after a suspicious item was found.
The airport said the terminal had been fully evacuated on the landside, before passport control.
Police were called at about 09:30 GMT after “suspicious actions” by a man. A spokesman said Explosive Ordnance Disposal specialists were at the scene.
Gatwick Airport has advised passengers to contact airlines for information.
Sussex Police said the man was arrested after he “discarded an item” at the airport.
Det Supt Nick May said: “At this time, we are investigating the circumstances of the incident and it is too early to say what the item may be.
“However, given the events in Paris on Friday evening, there is heightened awareness around any such incident and it is best that we treat the matter in all seriousness.”
