Drones Causing Concern In Wednesfield

Recently I had a question relating to the flying of Drones.

This was from a resident living in Wednesfield North. It was explained to me that there was a concern being voiced in a part of the area, whereby Drones were being flew over local homes and gardens. Residents were concerned for their safety and privacy.

I have spoken with the City Council , and the information that they have sent me suggests that the matter is not a City Council duty. – I have copied the paragraph sent to me for readers information.

“We have checked with the Environmental Health department who have confirmed that this type of complaint is dealt with either by the Civil Aviation Authority or the Police with regard to privacy laws.”

I do hope that if you still remain concerned, about these issues, that you contact West Midlands Police in the first instance.As the advice suggests
