Stansted Airport has been evacuated with thousands affected
The departures hall at the Essex airport had to be shut down after a fire alarm was set off.
It is believed passengers were evacuated from Stansted Airport after an e-cigarette was smoked in the toilets.
In a statement on Twitter, Stansted Airport wrote: "Stansted is a smoke-free airport, in line with British law on smoking in enclosed public spaces."
Passengers who missed their flights or faced travel delays blasted the person behind the fire alarm on Twitter.
Andrew White wrote: "Made me miss only flight to visit Dad for his bday, hope they caught the idiot and throw everything they can at them."
