Airport outer forecourt reopens
Forensic teams at the scene
The forecourt has been closed since Saturday's attack
Glasgow Airport has reopened its outer forecourt to public transport.

The road had been closed following Saturday's terrorist attack. However, the inner forecourt remains closed.

The outer one is now accessible to buses, licensed airport taxis, NCP flightpath shuttle buses, and emergency vehicles.

New arrangements have been put in place in an area of car park 2 to make the airport more accessible to disabled passengers.

Only vehicles registered with the airport's automatic number plate recognition system will be permitted access to the outer forecourt and all vehicles will be subject to security checks.

Airport managing director Gordon Dewar said: "We are delighted to be able to re-open the airport's outer forecourt to public transport vehicles.

"With flights operating normally, and the outer forecourt now in operation, our next challenge will be to repair the damage to the terminal entrance, and we are confident that we can do so within days."
