Climate-change activists plan to disrupt Heathrow with drones on Friday

LONDON: Climate-change activists plan to disrupt Heathrow airport with drones on Friday (Sep 13) morning, despite the arrest of five of their ...

The Heathrow Pause group aims to ground flights by illegally flying drones within 5km of an airport, to put pressure on the government to take tougher steps to reduce carbon emissions.

Police arrested three men and two women from the group on Thursday on suspicion of conspiracy to commit a public nuisance in relation to operations at the airport.

Earlier this week, police said they were confident the action would not lead to a repeat of the chaos seen at Gatwick last December, when drone sightings grounded planes in the run-up to Christmas.

But they warned that attempted disruption of the airport and flying drones without permission in the exclusion zone were serious crimes.
