Sydney Flights Grounded, Air Traffic Control Tower Evacuated

Flights in and out of Sydney have been grounded after smoke was detected in the airport's air traffic control tower.

The tower was evacuated just after 11am on Friday, with firefighters now on scene.

"There is a full ground stop in place with no aircraft departing or arriving at this time," an Airservices Australia spokeswoman said.

Former Greens senator Scott Ludlam tweeted shortly after 11.30am: “flight crew just announced the sydney air traffic control tower has been evacuated”.
