The Dutch have got the best solution to this problem.

Low-tech, environmentally friendly & safe.

Plus, you can say "Police - EAGLE SQUAD!"

Apparently there are proper geofence interference measures in place, it fucks with the drones GPS so they end up just hovering & uncontrollable.

The implication being this one has been hacked to bypass whatever standard GPS it has. Not just some kid who's found his presents early... although that would be fucking funny.

Still going to go with environmental lads making a statement.

There was too spotted last night which initially brough them down.

They spotted another one a couple of hours ago.

They wanted to do that but there is a danger of stray bullets killing someone so they couldn't. Seriously.

See above.

They have called in the Army but won't say why. Can only assume to shoot them down without shooting anyone like the police would...

Would imagine it will be signals related. Possibly jamming or electronic counter measures which could render the drone useless. Though they may just decide to fire an AS90 at it
