London police announced Sunday that a damaged drone was discovered near Gatwick Airport, which had to close last week on Wednesday for drone sightings.
Detective Chief Superintendent Jason Tingley told Sky News that the drone had been discovered near the airport.
"Of course, we will do everything we can to investigate this drone forensically, and that's something that is quickly tracked and accelerated," Tingley told CNN.
Two people were reportedly released the day before their arrest in connection with the drones.
Sussex police said the two arrested on Friday were released because they cooperated with authorities and were not considered suspects, according to The Associated Press.
"We demand continued public support by reporting suspicious persons. "Tingley told the AP that the airport canceled inbound and outbound air travel due to the drone disruption, causing thousands of travelers to strand last Wednesday."
As soon as we believe we are approaching the operator, the drone disappears. When we try to reopen the airfield, the drone reappears, "said Sussex police superintendent Justin Burtenshaw to the British Press Association earlier in the week.
Police said no indication that the Incident was terrorist.
