The hapless holidaymaker apparently smashed the glass of an emergency alarm in Terminal 2, causing an evacuation of the terminal and surrounding buildings.

A spokesman for the airport said: “Due to an accidental passenger action, a fire alarm was set off in Terminal Two this morning. It led to a minor scale evacuation of a small part of the terminal for ten minutes. No flights were delayed or affected.”

The disruption left travellers angry, with one tweeting:

Luckily, the  incident only lasted 30 minutes before people could continue their journeys.

Innocent enough mistake, but of all the places to set off an alarm…
