A MAN WITH A GRENADE has been arrested at Gatwick airport in London. Official comment:

The home secretary’s spokesman said people should not “jump to conclusions” about the significance of the arrest.

“It is not uncommon for people in airports to be discovered with some form of weaponry. It doesn’t mean they are all al-Qaeda terrorists,” he said.

Well, that’s a relief.

UPDATE: Here’s another report. Note that both stories also say that two men were arrested at Heathrow in a separate incident. Coincidence? Most likely.
