An airport security source said: “There was a lack of leadership, direction and control. This was a hoax but the lack of preparedness would have been a disaster if a real attack had taken place.

But he added: “What is really disturbing is that when the order to evacuate was given those who should have put the emergency plan into effect appeared to have no idea what to do.”

“There was no designated rendezvous point and none knew where they were going or what to do.”
