The air traffic control tower at Sydney airport has been evacuated, apparently preventing any flights from landing or departing.
Air Services Australia told Guardian Australia the tower had been evacuated.
Former Greens senator Scott Ludlam tweeted shortly after 11.30am: “flight crew just announced the sydney air traffic control tower has been evacuated”.
