    Vibrator closes Australian Airport

    An adult sex toy sparked a security scare which closed an Australian airport for nearly an hour.

    The vibrating object was discovered at Mackay Airport by a security officer who noticed a suspicious package inside a rubbish bin.

    Cafeteria manager Lynne Bryant said her staff had been cleaning tables when they noticed a strange humming noise coming from the rubbish bin.

    "It was rather disconcerting when the rubbish bin started humming furiously," she told the Herald Sun.

    "We called security and next minute everybody was being evacuated while they checked it out."

    The police spokeswoman said the terminal was evacuated immediately.

    "Another two flights were expected to land at that stage but alternate arrangements were made for the passengers to collect their luggage away from the terminal," the spokeswoman said.

    Ms Bryant said in retrospect the humming sounded exactly like a vibrator - but it was better to be safe then sorry.

    "You can't afford to take chances," she said.

    I want to sincerely apologize to anyone who was needlessly delayed by my actions.
