Odds are it has already been noted might even have been flagged up by the mention of Isis

Interesting that they now say they have now found a damaged drone, would be interesting to know in what whey it was damaged.  As regards the original suspects I hope they look into where the intel came from and if it was the neighbour re the hedge then hope the police deal with it appropriately.

The cop in charge although he didn't actually say there were definitely no drones only that the only evidence was sightings by airport staff and members of the public.

But the control tower staff are on record as saying that a drone 'buzzed' them and flashed its lights. I's certainly all very odd but the police don't appear to have covered themselves with glory.

The Mail reported that their house had been ripped apart, that maybe journalistic exageration but if so I would have a solicitor on the case for restitution.  The trouble is the police are funded from tax payers money so not a problem then.

As long it is enough to buy a nice new big drone to annoy the neighbour/s who probably reported them.

Dear Longbuild light banter as I know your comment must be, the guy never had a drone just a helicopter.  There may be a press conference tomorrow, that might be interesting.
When you see this level of incompetence and I have nothing but respect for the police that we see, but they are told to go and do something by someone under pressure to get results.  I say no more.

Actually I do believe if you can believe the news articals that he did have a drone at some point. But as you say conference should be interesting.

If it was a 'false flag' operation then the arrest of the couple would have been done to distract from what was really happening.  Most unlikely both in the timing and the lack of coordination on the Friday.

thanks roy……....never heard that term before...…..thanks for the explanation
