Sussex Police say there have been more than 60 sightings of drone activity since Wednesday.

Earlier today, two people from Crawley, aged 54 and 47, were released with no charge.

The pair were arrested on Saturday on suspicion of the criminal use of drones to disrupt flights at Gatwick Airport.

Detective Chief Superintendent Jason Tingley said: “We are actively investigating sightings of drone activity at Gatwick Airport following 67 reports from the evening of December 19 to 21 from the public, passengers, police officers and staff at the airport.

"We have recovered a damaged drone, we're conducting house to house enquiries and taking statements from all who reported sightings.

“We are interviewing those who have reported these sightings, are carrying out extensive house to house enquiries and carrying out a forensic examination of a damaged drone found near the perimeter of the airport near Horley, which is close to the last reported sighting."
