Drone disruption at Gatwick

20/12/2018

After a briefing on the operation to locate the drones which have been disrupting Gatwick, I wanted to acknowledge the tremendous efforts of the police and partners across what is a huge geographical area.

I can’t comment on any of the specific operations, deployments or lines of inquiry but there is a large co-ordinated effort underway.

This is an utterly reckless interruption to the functioning of a major airport at a time when tens of thousands of people are trying to visit their families or go about their everyday business.  I have every sympathy for all those people stranded across the globe.

Picture is for illustrative purposes only, and not an image of those sighted at Gatwick.
