Home secretary says 'test ongoing' after package found
Home Secretary Theresa May has said a suspicious package found on a Chicago-bound plane at East Midlands Airport contained explosives.
In a statement she said tests were ongoing, but it was "not yet clear that it was a viable explosive device".
The home secretary said the government's emergency planning committee, Cobra, met on Friday to discuss the situation and would meet again on Saturday.
