Last week Detective Chief Superintendent Jason Tingley said there was “always a possibility that there may not have been any genuine drone activity in the first place,” because police relied on human witnesses to the sighting. That statement has now been dismissed by both the government and Sussex Police. York said that there had been 115 reports of drone sightings during the incident, of which 92 had been confirmed as legitimate. “I’m absolutely certain that there was a drone flying throughout the period that the airport was closed,” he said. “I myself spoke to an eyewitness yesterday who was on the roof of the airport with four other people seeing it. What they saw was corroborated by two police officers near the runway. They saw the same thing, doing the same description at the same time.” York added that two drones found near the airport in recent days have now been ruled out of the investigation.
The people dumb enough to fly drones around an airport in the first place. This was quite easy for me to figure out lol. Have a nice day.

The thing i find strange is that at one stage these so called " drones " where flying around in the early hours of the morning , around 3.30 am.
Who flies drones at that time ?

The pareidolia was in people imagining that the flying saucer involved was a drone.
BBC cameraman Martin Roberts said he was driving on the M25 past Heathrow airport at about 17:45 GMT when he saw what he believes was a drone.
"I could see, I'd say around 300 feet up, very bright, stationary flashing red and green lights, over the Harmondsworth area," he said.
"I could tell it was a drone - these things have got quite distinctive lights - not a helicopter. "The lights were very close together. It was a very clear night and the object was stationary, it was turning very, very slightly. I could see it very clearly, I'd say for about four to five minutes."
