Police issue drone warning after reports of devices going into other people's gardens

Telford | Crime | Published:

At least two people in Broseley are flying drones illegally – including flying their devices into other people's gardens.

The town's safer neighbourhood team said it had received multiple complaints of drone misuse since the start of the year.

Officers said that drone pilots had a responsibility to fly their drones safely, to keep it within sight at all times and to never fly it over congested areas.

They added that it was important to make sure images taken with the drone do not break privacy laws and to avoid collisions.

Anybody with information about people misusing drones should call police on 101.
