Another “You couldn’t make it up….” story


The Merseyside Police have been banging on about their right-on technical abilities, when they caught a car-thief using an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) surveillance drone.

The only problems is, they forgot to get a Permit to Fly for it from the Civil Aviation Authority. Now,   I know that the UK is plagued by petty regulations thanks to our proto-fascist government, but I would have thought that with something like this, it might be a good idea to get some approval first.  They,  and some other Polices Forces have had to ground their UAVs in the meantime. You couldn’t make it up!
