Drone tracking radar in use at Heathrow after disruption

Drone tracking technology is being used at Heathrow after drone sightings forced flights to be temporarily suspended.
The equipment - a radar system with the technology to stop the devices from flying in a certain zone - is being operated by the RAF over the airfield to "quickly detect and disrupt any illegal drone activity".
It was flown in by a Chinook helicopter at 10pm on Tuesday after Transport Secretary Chris Grayling said the military was "preparing to deploy the equipment used at Gatwick at Heathrow quickly should it prove necessary".
