Suggestion that drone did not exist down to 'poor communications'
Police should not have said there ‘may not have been any genuine drone activity’, says government source
Suggestions that there may never have been a drone at Gatwick Airport were down to “poor communications” rather than a genuine possibility that the incident was baseless, police have told the government.
Ministers were briefed on the latest situation at the airport in an hour-long conference call chaired by the transport secretary, Chris Grayling.
