Two residents of the town next to London Gatwick are under arrest in connection with the days-long disruption to London’s second airport.
The UK’s second busiest airport, London Gatwick, was completely closed after one or more drones of what UK aviation minister Liz Sugg called “industrial specification” were flown in critical flightpaths and over the airport.
After a day of attempting to return to normal, given the number of flights disrupted by unknown individuals operating drones in proximity to London’s Gatwick Airport, the airfield was again closed due to drone activity at approximately 1700 on Friday UK time, reopening approximately an hour later.
