image for Drones Given Thumbs-Up By Gatwick Airport

Gatwick Airport, which was closed last week due to sightings of a drone being operated in its airspace, has announced that, from the New Year, drones will be allowed to take off and land there.

Gatwick officials have come up with the futuristic plan, they say, rather than battle against the inevitable - dozens, then hundreds, then thousands of drones whirling, whizzing and buzzing this way and that, all day and all night long, by knobhead amateur enthusiasts with nothing better to do than endanger the lives of others.

Drones don't need the huge amount of space that an aeroplane's runway needs, and a small section, called the Droneway, has been earmarked for drone use.

Other UK airports, including London Heathrow, are watching closely.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
