Gatwick airport latest: Army called in as drones cause Christmas travel chaos | Independent

The army is being sent in to Gatwick airport after it was completely shut down for the best part of 24 hours by drones being “deliberately” flown near its airspace.

Some 110,000 people had been due to travel through the hub on what is one of the busiest days of the year as people jet off to reunite with loved ones for the Christmas break.

Officials from the Department for Transport, Home Office, the police and the Civil Contingencies Secretariat have been meeting in the Cabinet Office to discuss the ongoing issue.

The prime minister warned whoever is responsible faces years in jail if they are caught.
