The security incident took place at Moss Rygge Airport in Østfold, southeastern Norway and which was due to land at 6.55pm, was delayed for an hour following the security scare.

 

 

The plane was searched but no device was found and passengers were allowed back on the plane.

Customers disembarked the aircraft and were provided with refreshment vouchers.

Ryanair had sincerely apologised for any inconvenience caused by this hoax.

It was later revealed that he item which sparked the mass evacuation “was a training device which had accidentally been left by a private company following a training exercise involving explosive search dogs”.
