TORONTO — Passengers at Billy Bishop Airport in Toronto are being warned to expect delays after police had to investigate an item found in someone's luggage.

The airport says the item turned out to be a medical device and there was no threat to public safety. 

The passenger terminal at the airport was evacuated earlier on Monday morning and all security screening was paused as police investigated the item. 

The airport says the item was found around 7:20 a.m. and the site was declared safe about four hours later. 

The airport says normal operations are resuming but passengers should expect delays as airlines get back on schedule.
