Couple held and later cleared over Gatwick Airport drone disruption ‘feel violated’



A couple held over the drone disruption at Gatwick Airport and later released without charge have told Sky News they feel “completely violated”.

In an emotional statement outside their home in Crawley, West Sussex, Paul Gait and Elaine Kirk said: “As you can probably imagine, we’re feeling completely violated.

“Our home has been searched and our privacy and identity completely exposed.

“Our names, photos and other personal information have been broadcast throughout the world.

“We are deeply distressed, as are our family and friends, and we are currently receiving medical care.

“The way we were initially perceived was disgusting, although those who knew us didn’t doubt us for a second.”
