Brussels Airport has been rocked by two explosions, with a further explosion occurring at a metro station in the city. The terror threat has been raised to the highest level, and all flights have been cancelled.

At the time of writing, the death toll stands at 28, with at least 80 injured.

Footage has emerged on social media, of plumes of smoke rising from the airport as people run to safety, as well as passengers evacuating a metro service between the Maelbeek and Arts-Loi stations.

Prime Minister Charles Michel has addressed the media, asking Belgians to “face the challenge by being united, and coming together.”
