An unexploded World-War-II-era bomb has shut down London's City Airport, leaving all flights in and out of the airport cancelled and affecting up to 16,000 passengers.

The bomb was discovered at George V Dock in the River Thames by workers just after 5:00am on Sunday (local time), according to a statement by London's Metropolitan Police.

Police set up an exclusion zone around the dock, closing roads and forcing residents to evacuate their properties.

London City Airport chief executive Robert Sinclair said all flights to and from the airport had been cancelled.
