Drone incident delays flights at Heathrow - report

Several flights were delayed on Tuesday after a drone was spotted at London's Heathrow airport, local media reported.

Heathrow's spokesperson stated that the airport's staff was cooperating with the Metropolitan Police in order to establish whether a drone was actually operating in the airport's airspace. The flights have been stopped "as a precaution," according to the spokesman.

Earlier in December, alleged drone sightings led to a three-day closure of the Gatwick Airport. Following the incident, the United Kingdom government gave police new powers to deal with the illegal use of drone technology.
