"As a precautionary measure, Heathrow Airport has stopped departures and officers based at Heathrow are currently investigating the reports with colleagues from Heathrow Airport," they said.
A Heathrow spokeswoman says the airport worked with police to "prevent any threat to operational safety".
"As a precautionary measure, we have stopped departures while we investigate. We apologise to passengers for any inconvenience this may cause."
