Just watching the news coverage of the tragic events in Essex where 39 bodies have been found in a lorry container. The police have put up a barrier around the lorry, I’d guess about 8ft tall, to stop people looking in… so the BBC is showing what looks to be drone (could be helicopter, but I don’t think so) footage as they zoom in from the air to gawp into the cab through the open door.
Have to say, I’m not a fan of 24/7 news and the need to show increasingly graphic/shocking footage to keep the viewers hooked. Do I need to see video of the lorry to know what a lorry looks like? No. They’re never going to show the bodies at 11am (and I’d turn off if they did) but the suggestion they might seems to be what they were going for.
I was looking at drone regulations in Norway last week and they have this covered:
Model aircraft may not be flown over or in the vicinity of a place where an incident site has been established by the emergency services or the Armed Forces in connection with an accident or other extraordinary event.
Personally, I’d have no problem at all with something similar being added in to the ANO.
