NEW laws to govern the increasing use of drones across the UK are to come into being.

The Government has announced sweeping changes to ensure greater safety, especially around airports, including owners having to pass a safety awareness course.

The Department for Transport is also considering an age-limit for the test to prevent children from flying drones.

While they’re a wonderful piece of technology, in irresponsible hands they are a danger to many especially air travellers.

This legislation is overdue but we also need a sea change in people’s own approach to drones. The safety of others is paramount here.
