Another said ‘everyone’ has been evacuated from area 15 after the discovery of a suspicious package in terminal 2C.

However, the airport has since revealed it was a false alert and that they were only carrying out the ‘usual unattended baggage procedure’.
A spokesman said: ‘No evacuation at #CDG airport this morning. Only usual unattended baggage procedure. We are now back to normal.’

France remains on high alert after a wave of terror attacks in the country carried out by ISIS in the last year.
The evacuation also comes with Europe on edge days after an ISIS fanatic drove a lorry through a packed Christmas market in Berlin, killing 12.
