The discovery of Second World War bombs is a global problem.

Police said the German bomb was discovered Sunday at the George V Dock during pre-planned work at City Airport.

London City, the smallest of London's global airports, handled 4.5 million passengers past year. This is a far cry from the 62 found in 2016 and the 66 from 2015, highlighting a 55% and 58% drop respectively.

London Airport Reopens after World War 2 Bomb Removed From Thames on Tuesday, the airport officials said. Every effort is being made to minimise disruption and Met Police officers continue to go door to door to ensure those living within the exclusion zone are aware of the safety arrangements in place.

The operation to remove the 500kg tapered-end shell bomb, which is lying in a bed of dense silt, is now expected to be completed by Monday evening, according to London City Airport. "As a result, the exclusion zone has now been lifted and the airport will be open as normal".

All of Monday's scheduled arrivals and departures were cancelled as the emergency services dealt with the issue.

Among passengers affected were Tottenham Hotspur fans heading to Italy for a Champions League game against Juventus.

The Metropolitan Police said the device would be transported to a secure disposal area, where it will be detonated in a controlled explosion. He also thanked local residents, who had to be evacuated, passengers, who had their travel plans disrupted, and commuters hit by the closure of the Docklands Light Railway, for their understanding.
