Edinburgh Airport warns public ahead of training exercise tonight
Members of the public have been warned not to be alarmed, as Edinburgh Airport prepares for an emergency training exercise this evening.
In order to ensure that the exercise is as authentic as possible, a specific area within the terminal building will be cordoned off.
Airport operations will not be affected and disruption to the local community will be kept to a minimum.
You are being alerted to the exercise in the event that members of the public contact the media about the increased police presence in the area. There is no media facility.
An area of the terminal will be closed off for the exercise to take place and no access will be granted. Staff will be in place to inform passengers of the exercise and allay any concerns or fears.
