Gatwick Police Weigh In On Recent Crisis At Airport

0 119


Remember
the drone sightings that shut down Gatwick Airport for nearly 36 hours,
delaying over 100,000 people and even requiring a  military intervention in order to reopen it?

Well,
Newser reports that it’s possible that some of those sightings were of Sussex
Police surveillance drones, the department’s chief constable now says.

“We
will have launched our own Sussex police drones at the time, with a view to
investigate, engage, and survey the area. So there could be some level of
confusion there as well,” Giles York tells the BBC, per Business Insider.

Though
some people questioned whether there were actually any drones at all during the
shutdown, York says that 92 of 115 reported sightings had been confirmed.

“I’m
absolutely certain that there was a drone flying throughout the period that the
airport was closed,” he said.

York
also said he was “really sorry” for the couple who were arrested and released without charge,
reports the BBC.
