"Terminal 3 was evacuated due to a fire alarm. This was a false alarm and we apologise for any inconvenience caused. Passengers will shortly be allowed back inside the terminal following this incident," a Heathrow spokesperson said.
Our teams have investigated and there is no fire in T3 despite the alarm. Passengers will be directed back into the terminal shortly.— Heathrow Airport (@HeathrowAirport) July 4, 2017
