AIRPORT DOOM! IEDs Found At Heathrow & City Airport

Counterterrorism probe launched after small IEDs found at Heathrow, City airports & Waterloo station 

British police have launched a counterterrorism investigation after “small improvised explosive devices” were found at London sites including Heathrow Airport, City Airport and Waterloo train station, the Met said in a statement. Three suspicious packages – all A4-sized white envelopes – appeared primed to start a small fire when opened, according to investigators. Flights were not affected by the security alerts and no injuries have been reported, although at least one of the packages was opened by an unsuspecting staff member, and it partially burned. Police are appealing for Londoners to be vigilant and report any suspicious packages. London Mayor Sadiq Khan tweeted his thanks to the security services for their response to the packages. Source
