Looks like hundreds of flights are either grounded/diverting due to an ongoing drone issue at London Gatwick. Almost 100,000 passengers have been affected due to flights not taking off or landing.
Airport has been closed since 21:00 GMT yesterday when the first drones had been spotted.
Police have said they will not shoot down the drones as it will cause a risk of stray bullets. They are currently searching for the drone operator. The airport has been closed for 17 hours and counting. It seems like airlines have been advised to cancel flights until 16:00 GMT, however everytime I look at these estimates, they seem to be increasing by one hour each time.
What’s your thoughts on this?
