London City Airport has been closed following the discovery of World War II Bomb nearby in the River Thames on Sunday.

The airport said the Metropolitan Police and the Royal Navy are "working hard to safely remove the device and resolve the situation as quickly as possible".

All flights in and out of London City Airport on Monday are cancelled.

Transport for London said Docklands Light Railway services will not run between Pontoon Dock and Woolwich Arsenal due to the 214-metre exclusion zone set up for handling the emergency.
