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


If I was a drone hobbyist I would be seriously worried about [the] kneejerk reaction.

So someone has been buzzing around the restricted zone and effectively closed the airport for nigh on 24 hours. On the presumption that this isn't a mis-identified plastic bag or something why would it be a knee-jerk reaction?

If someone can close down an airport this easily and cheaply why shouldn't we have some tighter regulations?

(not a hobbyist)
