    BBC News - Cargo sparks security alert at international airports

    It was reported to be an ink toner cartridge that had been tampered with. Sources told the BBC it was not a "bomb" but was "potentially sinister".

    I'm just up the road from East Mids Airport, you would not have known anything was going off, apart from 2 roads shut at the south end of the airport, and a cordern on the UPS sorting shed, and one of the Royal Mail buildings.

    Anyways.... confirmed. It was just HP reporting the ink cartridge so they could prevent "ink refills" :biggrin1:

    glad to see no one gives two shits about the safety and security of our country! I mean there were bombs en route to Chicago from the UK and UAE, but I guess talking about dicks take presidence.

    I'm finding it very interesting that the media isn't all over this.

    maybe they are trying not to sensationalize it
    CNN always seems to do that well.
    remember balloon boy...
