After the Police tried to find the bag’s owner, the bomb disposal unit was called in, after which the terminal was evacuated and traffic to and from the frontier was stopped.
Having exploded the bag in question, things went back to normal, although many drivers had to wait for well over an hour to get moving again.
As The Gibraltar Chronicle headlines, it was a false alarm. However, the bag’s owner turned up a while later to claim it, according to Police sources.
