A fire alarm has prompted the evacuation of Gatwick Airport’s South Terminal
Passengers have complained on Twitter about the alert with little information being given out as to why, or whether it could cause delays to flights.
@Gatwick_Airport Can you advise what’s happening re the fire alarm? There seems to be no one in charge

One passenger said the cause of the alarm was a fire in Nandos, but Gatwick has yet to confirm this.
However, the airport said passengers could now return to the building.
Apologies to anyone who was temporarily evacuated from the South Terminal departure lounge due to a fire alarm. We’re back up & running now.
