Cairns Airport evacuated

CAIRNS Airport, in far north Queensland, has reportedly been thrown into lockdown, forcing hundreds of people outside.

Photos taken at the airport have shown hundreds of people standing out the front of the normally busy terminal.

The cause of the evacuation is still unclear.

Passengers have been told everyone will need to go through security for a second time and several flights have already been delayed.

Cairns Airport has been contacted for comment.

More to come.
