A student has been fined after a bomb hoax at Newquay Airport.

Staff became suspicious after he falsely implied he was carrying a device as he tried to board a flight to London Gatwick at around 2.30 pm on Friday afternoon.

The 17 year old from Sussex has been ordered to pay an £80 penalty notice for wasting police time.

A spokesperson for Devon and Cornwall Police said:  "Any suspicion we have that a passenger may endanger an aircraft or its passengers is taken very seriously.

"Security staff at the Airport were extremely vigilant and we closed roads around the facility for a short time whilst the incident was going on.

"Any travellers should be well aware of their obligations as a passenger and offenders will be dealt with robustly."

The teenager and his family were allowed to catch the flight once police were satisfied they posed no risk to the public.
