Doctor arrested over explosive traces


A doctor was arrested in a weekend terror swoop at Glasgow Airport, the Daily Record reports. The details of the story make it sound very much like this was the suspect package alert reported on the same day.

The 28-year-old doctor was detained after security staff detected what they believed were traces of explosives on his hand luggage. The doctor who works at Wishaw General Hospital, Lanarkshire, was held overnight on Saturday, but later released without charge.

An 'airport insider' told the newspaper: ‘There were traces of explosive found on the guy's personal belongings.’ A police spokeswoman added: ‘We can confirm that as a result of routine scanning of hand baggage by BAA staff at Glasgow Airport, an item was identified requiring further examination. In the interests of safety, the owner of the item was subsequently identified and detained to allow further investigation to take place.’

Last night, a police spokesman told the Record that it had been a false alarm. He said: ‘The item has now been fully examined and it has been found to be completely in order. The man has been released and the matter is being treated by police as a false alarm.’
