Sussex Police’s own drones in the Gatwick drone incident

Michael Richards made this Freedom of Information request to Sussex Police

This request has been closed to new correspondence. Contact us if you think it should be reopened.

Waiting for an internal review by Sussex Police of their handling of this request.

Dear Sussex Police,

This a request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

The chief constable of Sussex Police told BBC Radio 4’s Today Programme on 29 December 2018 that police had received 115 reports of drone sightings, including 93 confirmed as coming from "credible people".

Of the 93 sightings from credible people, how many of these were sightings of Sussex Police’s own drones launched for the purposes of the investigation?

Yours faithfully,

Michael Richards
