Man arrested at Manchester airport after alert

LONDON (Reuters) - British police arrested a man under the
terrorism act at Manchester airport on Friday morning after a
struggle and are investigating a suspect package.

"Police attempted to arrest the man who struggled with
officers. A Taser gun was then used to detain the man," a
spokeswoman for Manchester police said.

An Army bomb disposal unit is investigating a suspect
package that was found and part of terminal One and Two were
closed, she said.

An airport spokeswoman said there could be some disruption
to flights, but urged people to keep arriving.
