Los aeropuertos españoles han operado 181 vuelos hasta las 14 horas con el Reino Unido

The security alert at UK airports has affected most flights to Spain with some airports operating only one-sixth of flights scheduled for today, so far.

The full statistics from Aena (equivalent to the CAA) are available here.

Iberia's services from Heathrow will close today at 20.00, having only managed to get 2 flights away today.

Having apprehended a load of alleged bombers, UK authorities now decide to increase security.

Phrases including the words 'horse', 'door', and 'bolt' come irresistibly to mind.

Rather like how we all had to put our shoes through the X-ray machine at Heathrow only in the immediate aftermath of the arrest of Richard Reid.

I knew that something was up on Monday this week. It's not every day that Tornado jets practice full afterburner scrambles from Gibraltar all day.

They're still doing it, so I imagine the danger is not yet past - thay haven't caught them all yet.
