The drone attack that caused a major disruption to air traffic at London’s Gatwick Airport in late December might have been organised by a member of the airport’s current or former staff, The Times newspaper reported on Thursday, citing governmental sources.

According to the media, the drone was flying in blind spot areas that were known only to the airport’s employees, and the hypothesis was supported by another source, who said that the incident might have been staged by a “disgruntled employee.”

Flights at London Gatwick were suspended between late 19 December and early 21 December due to a drone flying over the airfield.
