Flights suspended at Hanover airport after man drives auto onto runway”

Millions of people fly through it every year, but it is not considered one of Germany's major hubs.

Hanover Airport closed to flights for several hours on Saturday after a man drove a auto through a fence onto the tarmac. Photographs from travellers at the airport appear to show an Aegean Airlines A320, whose taxi seems to have been impeded by the auto.

Hannover police said on Twitter that officers stopped the vehicle and overwhelmed the man.

Last-minute bid could keep Sears from being liquidated
Sears chairman Eddie Lampert proposed to buy out the company as a whole through his hedge fund, ESL Investments, for $4.6 billion. The company has been seeking a bidder willing to keep the remaining stores open as part of a reorganization of the business.

Images from the airport showed a vehicle and security response close to an Aegean Airlines aircraft.

The driver could have been on drugs as the incident unfolded, NDR said, adding that the quick on-site drug test was "positive". According to police, the incident is not being treated as terror-related, and the gentleman involved was believed to be acting alone. Other tips involved possible extremists surveilling German airports.

Departures and landings of planes resumed shortly after 8:00pm (local time) after being halted for about four hours.

Bomb disposal experts were examining the auto. The security areas are now vacated, now there is no clearance.

Arriving flights are now diverting to nearby airports (such as Hamburg or Bremen), while departures have been suspended until further notice.
