Gatwick and Heathrow airports order military-grade anti-drone equipment - The Times

Jan 3 (Reuters) - London’s Gatwick and Heathrow airports have ordered military-grade anti-drone defences worth “several million pounds” after drones caused three days of disruption at Gatwick last month, the Times newspaper reported on Thursday.

Transport minister Chris Grayling met police, aviation and defence chiefs early on Thursday to discuss the issue, the report bit.ly/2R6mmmN said.

The airports did not immediately comment on the report. (Reporting by Kanishka Singh in Bengaluru Editing by Andrew Heavens)
