Worried homeowners call cops after drone used to spy into neighbours' bedroomFebruary 22, 2019
Cops raced to the property in Bugbrooke, near Northampton, at 10.40pm on Sunday after reports of the device hovering outside a house.
By the time cops arrived to the village the drone had flown away.
A Northamptonshire Police spokeswoman said: "We received a call saying they had seen a drone flying around the property. It appeared to be hovering by the windows.
"We gave them basic safety and crime prevention advice, telling them to keep their windows closed."
It comes as Gatwick Airport was forced to cancel more than 1,000 which affected an estimated 140,000 passengers just before Christmas last year.
Dublin Airport was also forced to ground flights after a drone was spotted flying over the runway on Thursday.
Siobhan O'Donnell, spokeswoman for Dublin Airport, said: "It's a very serious situation to spot a drone in the airfield so the decision to suspend flights was not taken lightly.
"Drones can do huge damage to an aircraft. The drone was out in the airfield area where flights are landing and taking off."
Two people were arrested following the Gatwick drone fiasco but they were subsequently released without charge.
But since then nobody has been arrested for either incidents.
