The device was discovered at the King George V Dock on Sunday during planned work at the east London airport.All flights were canceled on Monday as an exclusion zone was put in place, forcing the airport's closure, affecting up to 16,000 passengers and leading to the evacuation of residents.The bomb is due to be detonated in a controlled explosion in Shoeburyness.The device - which is expected to be destroyed between 09:00 and 11:00 - was moved by bomb disposal experts from where it was found in a bed of silt 15m underwater to another location in the dock.
Mr Sinclair thanked those affected for their "patience and understanding" during the disruption.A total of 261 arrivals and departures had been scheduled for Monday.Residents who were evacuated to temporary accommodation have been told they can now return to their homes.A tunnel used by some rail services from St Pancras International was closed around midnight, affecting services.
Royal Navy divers have worked through the night to move the 1.5m-long German bomb down the Thames. London City Airport's chief executive Robert Sinclair said, as a result, the exclusion zone had been lifted it would "business as usual" on Tuesday.Some road and bridge closures would be in place as the bomb is moved for disposal, the Met said.
