Burnt Koru Lounge toast prompts Wellington Airport evacuation

Burnt toast was to blame for Wellington Airport being evacuated on Friday morning.

A piece of toast in the Koru Lounge triggered an alarm at around 5.45am in the international terminal.

It forced 300 people to briefly evacuate, including passengers who had already boarded a plane.

Two flights were delayed as a result by about 45 minutes but have since departed.
