Heathrow flights halted after drone sighting 

Senior Home Affairs Correspondent

Flights have been grounded at Heathrow for at least half an hour after a reported drone sighting earlier this evening. Within the last hour flights have resumed at the airport, the busiest in Europe. Last month hundreds of flights were cancelled, and more than 100,000 passengers were delayed, at Gatwick Airport after a series of drone sightings. Currently flights are being allowed to land at Heathrow.
