Frankfurt Airport evacuated

Part of a terminal at Frankfurt Airport was evacuated after a French family that had not completed required security checks were allowed into a secure area.

"The family was found, questioned and allowed to travel further", it said.

The Frankfurt Airport is being evacuated due to what the authorities described as "security breach" when an unauthorised individual gained undue access into unauthorised space.
