I was on duty when the call was received from Dublin to close the airport.
The explanation we received here was that the aircraft was parked on the taxiway but the evacuated passengers were wandering around on the manouevring area. It was therefore considered unsafe to continue normal operations. The airport was only closed for about half an hour.
