London's Gatwick airport suspends all flights after 'multiple' reports of drones

relevant legislation

Section 3ZA of the computer misuse act which affects national infrastructure has a maximum penalty of 14 years. Same goes for supplying tools. So someone designing and supplying a drone to be pre-programmable, with stealth capabilities and to ignore exclusion zones knowing it would be used in an incident of this nature would be guilty of a section 3A offence - current maximum 2 years.
