Update on Gatwick drones: Man and woman arrested

Gatwick drone chaos: Man and woman arrested

A man and a woman have been arrested on suspicion of “the criminal use of drones” at Gatwick following several days of disruption at Britain’s second busiest airport.

The 47-year-old man and 54-year-old woman were arrested in Crawley, the closest major town to the airport, late Friday evening, police said, on suspicion of disrupting civil aviation services “to endanger or likely to endanger safety of operations or persons.”

“Our investigations are still ongoing, and our activities at the airport continue to build resilience to detect and mitigate further incursions from drones, by deploying a range of tactics,” Sussex Police Superintendent James Collis said. The airport aims to run a full schedule of flights on Saturday but warned travelers to expect some delays and cancellations.
