Parts of Luton Airport were evacuated "as a precaution" after a fire alarm went off.

The check-in and arrivals area of the terminal building were evacuated at 13:40 GMT while the fire service investigated.

The cause was traced to a retail unit and was found to be a false alarm, the airport said.

Firefighters confirmed the area was safe and normal operations resumed at 14:20, it added.
