From the 30th of July new laws came into force about the flying of drones restricting the flight to under 400 feet or 120m
It is also against the law to fly a drone within 1km of an airport or airfield boundary.
As part of the Air Navigation Order those breaching these restrictions “will face penalties of up to £2,500 and could also be charged with recklessly or negligently acting in a manner likely to endanger an aircraft or any person in an aircraft, which can carry a penalty of up to 5 years imprisonment.”

Well done Fiona, a timely reminder.
They can be useful – they can be very useful. They can also be a damn nuisance!
I believe that they should be restricted to ‘official’ use.
