“At this time, we are investigating the circumstances of the incident and it is too early to say what the item may be,” Detective Superintendent Nick May said in a written statement. “However, given the events in Paris on Friday evening, there is heightened awareness around any such incident and it is best that we treat the matter in all seriousness.”
At least 128 people were killed late Friday in coordinate attacks in and around Paris.
Gatwick Airport, the second-busiest of London’s several international airports, is about 30 miles (50 kilometers) south of the British capital.
