Police hunt drone pilots responsible for shutting down UK airport

The United Kingdom’s second-biggest airport has been closed on one of the year’s busiest days for travel after drone sightings, which police have described as a “deliberate act.” London’s Gatwick Airport has been closed since 9 p.m. on Wednesday — bar a brief reprieve of 45 minutes early Thursday — after drones were spotted near the airfield. Passengers due to fly on Thursday evening or Friday were being told not to go to the airport without first checking the status of the flight with the appropriate airline. CNN/ABC7
