Security staff at Edinburgh Airport sprung into immediate action earlier today when a suspicious package was detected having been left unattended in the baggage hall. Detective Inspector Hamish McTaggart of Scotland’s Border Patrol revealed that the Terminal (that’s a name not a description of Scotland’s independence plans) was evacuated and all access roads to the airport closed from around 1.30pm.
Not wishing to have a repeat of the ‘incident’ at Glasgow airport in 2007, when a man set his trousers on fire and then crashed into the park and display ticket machine, passengers, staff, drunks and addicts were asked to leave the building whilst armed SWAT teams and bomb disposal experts took up positions around the baggage reclaim area. With a Terror level 5 Orange alert now in situ, a tense standoff then ensued before with military precision the terrorist threat has now been dealt with using the appropriate force.
A spokesman for the airport security team revealed to a waiting press (via an interpreter who translated it into understandable English) that "as part of a routine bag search at the airport by our highly trained team of Highland Terriers, suspicions were raised about the contents of one item of unattended hand luggage. In normal circumstances bags left unattended even for a minute are swiped by nimble fingered baggage handlers on the basis of the 'finder's keeper's rule.' As this item remained untouched for at least 5 mins, the decision was taken to evacuate the airport while the appropriate inquiries could be carried out."
First minister Alex Salmond, deputy first minister Jimmy Sole and justice secretary Morag Haddock were aware of the incident and praised the actions of the border patrol to prevent infiltration of illegal merchandise into the country, making the joint statement that the integrity of Scotland has been maintained and people will be able to sleep soundly in their beds and shop doorways tonight."
The suspicious package which formed a terrorist threat, or bag of fresh fruit and vegetables as it is known south of the border has been neutralised by specially trained team wearing chemical warfare suits and armed with the latest high tech deep fat fryers.
