Another day, another drone-related airport shutdown.
And on Tuesday evening, shortly after the government announced new police powers and regulations regarding drones, it’s happened again.
Shortly before 6pm, London’s Heathrow Airport posted the following tweet:
We are responding to a drone sighting at Heathrow and are working closely with the Met 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.
