    Thousands of passengers were evacuated from the Qantas terminal at Melbourne Airport this morning over a security scare.

    A man reportedly entered the departure hall through the exit door and was not stopped by officials.

    As a result, all passengers who had been screened were forced to leave the terminal.

    At least 2,000 Qantas and Jetstar passengers are waiting to be re-screened.

    Not much fun if you are waiting for a flight.
