Two suspected Fathers 4 Justice protesters sparked alarm when they breached Heathrow Airport security fences while planes were taking off and landing today.
Passengers waiting to disembark flights around 1.30pm said they were held on the tarmac as police rushed to arrest the pair. But a BAA spokeswoman said no disruption was caused to flight schedules.
“Two individuals, believed to be from Fathers 4 Justice, breeched the perimeter fence at Heathrow airport and were quickly apprehended,” she said.
Two Fathers 4 Justice protesters were arrested after unsuccessfully attempting to access the airfield in 2009.
