Cops simply seized many of them on Thursday evening.

The Heath­row Pause mob managed only one drone flight and no planes were disrupted.

There was also a large police presence throughout the day.

In total, 11 people were arrested.

Irish Paralympian James Brown handed himself in to cops, saying he sucessfully flew a drone nearby.


Heathrow Pause, an Extinction Rebellion off-shoot, questioned why this did not shut down the airport.

It claimed jamming kit stopped them flying more.

A representative wrote online: “We won’t stand by and allow this planet-killing monstrosity to expand.”
