Passengers awaiting flights from Stornoway airport were evacuated from the terminal this morning (Wednesday 4 March) after smoke sensors warned of a possible fire in the building.

The airport’s on-site fire crews were called to the front of the building after an alert of smoke and all members of the public were asked to gather outside in the airport car park.

An airport spokesman said the false alarm appeared to have been caused by burning toast and that no flights were delayed arriving into or leaving from Stornoway as a result.
