I bet he's a middle lane hogger too that doesn't indicate when turning across a junction and uses his fog lights inappropriately.

I say flog him! devil

I think some people do fly these devices in ignorance of the law. Stories like this will hopefully serve to educate owners it is not a free for all

As for those who are aware of the law and flaunt it anyway then they deserve prosecution

Whilst 'drones' keep appearing in a negative light through the media I suppose bona fide modellers will take exception to them, and quite rightly too. If the bad press carries on much longer I believe it will have an impact on fixed wing flyers with the inevitable introduction of stricter rules.

Watch this space as they say. dont know

Yep - letter to the Editor in this morning's Times calling for the government to introduce licencing for all drone flying.

I'm very sure it is really easy to mistake a fenced off secure area as only being restricted for people on the ground.

"I bet he's a middle lane hogger too that doesn't indicate when turning across a junction and uses his fog lights inappropriately.

Bill, it's this sort of easy-going liberal attitude that just encourages law breakers.

Brian, I suspect it may be a quiet word only in the sense that it's quiet compared to Mount St Helens

I am hoping it will eventually self regulate on the most part. I lot will try drones (for want of a better word) and then once the novelty is worn off that will be that. others will get into the hobby more seriously investing time and money. A club will not be their community or point of reference but this will come in the form of internet forums and specialists magazines. Prosecutions of those who break the law might serve as a warning to others. Maybe give police power to confiscate equipment used in an illegal manor

Plenty of coverage on TV and in the newspapers about 'drone' activities and more and more in the model mags, also across social media so there's no excuse at all now for anyone to claim ignorance of the regulations.

You would hope so!

But wasn't there a very high profile incident not so long ago that occurred only about 20 or 30 miles away from where this one happened? The one where somebody flew his camera-equipped model into the controlled airspace at a nuclear submarine base (near Barrow-in-Furness) and skimmed a road bridge narrowly missing pedestrians and vehicles. The CAA went to have "a quiet word" with him, he told them to "go away" (or something similar...) so they prosecuted him, he was fined and had costs awarded against him that ran into several thousands of pounds. That made the national news, and must have been widely-reported locally.
