Drugged driver forces vehicle onto Hannover Airport tarmac: German police

  • An armed police officer patrols at the airport in Hanover on Dec 29 2018 after flight operations were suspended

While the terminal area remained open, however, a police statement from the local force claimed that the security areas were "currently vacated".

"Officers from the Federal Police were able to stop the vehicle and overwhelm the man", Hannover Police said in a statement.

Police alleged the man was under the influence of drugs when he drove the Polish-registered auto through a gate and onto the apron, German news agency dpa reported.

Bomb disposal experts examined the auto but found no unsafe objects.

The man had tried to follow a plane operated by Greek airline Aegean, which was landing after a flight from Athens.

Klopp though, celebrating his 100th Liverpool win, is in no mood for complacency: "The six-point lead means nothing", he said. When Delph was dismissed for a high challenge on Pereira in the dying moments, Guardiola's misery was complete.

Police cars stopped the vehicle and officers overpowered the driver. No one was hurt.

The man was believed to have acted alone.

Police charged that the suspect had tested positive for cocaine and amphetamines, according to local media reports.

They couldn't give further information about where he came from because he was not carrying an identity card. Other tips involved possible extremists surveilling German airports.

Millions fly through the airport, 11km from the city centre, every year but it is not one of the country's major hubs. During the incident, Eurocontrol said that the airport would be closed to takeoffs and landings until 8 pm.
