How the Gatwick drone saga broke my family’s hearts | Letters
The cancelling of flights at Gatwick ruined Christmas for 16-year-old Tivka Dillner’s family; Judith Martin on why Liz Truss is the woman to consult on drones; plus letters from Christine Bainbridge, Jol Miskin, Terry Hunt, Mike Evans, Brian Robinson, Alec Mitchell and Ruth Coppard
My name is Tivka and I am 16 years old. I live with my mum and my four younger siblings. In February my dear grandma booked a secret surprise holiday for us as a family to Lapland for Christmas. This was something that my grandma and grandpa always wanted to do for us when we were younger, but unfortunately my grandpa died at an early age and their wish couldn’t come true.
After my grandpa’s passing on New Year’s Day 2010, my family were left in pieces, and my grandma unfortunately didn’t recover from the loss well and will be in mourning eternally, I fear.
