Just noticed a drone flying over the Channel between Folkestone and Calais. What’s that all about?

Hope someone can answer it Boaty. It’s flying backwards and forwards halfway across the Channel. Hope it’s not armed!

looking for boats out there full of desperate people?


that is probably it, looking for those who are crossing the channel is these dingies.
in these ....

Google ‘confirms’ it is a drone flying out of Lydd Airport. Possibly looking for illegal activity, but otherwise pretty secretive.
watch out, Arrods, it may be armed.....
Yes, armed with, Welcome To Britain signs.
I don't think it is any secret that the Border Force is using a fixed wing drone, G-TEKV, to patrol the channel looking for migrant boats. It is based at Lydd airfield.

When I first saw its tracking, it looked like an 'Etch-a-sketch' trying to fill in the Channel.
One of the invaders ordered a curry from the Guljar Tandoori, on Lydd High Street, via the ‘Just Eat’ app.
If you watch Flightradar24, you will also see a flight coming out of Liverpool flying backwards and forwards over parts of the mainland. I think it is doing aerial photography for someone like Google.
It’s not migrants they’re after, they checking Farage has broken lockdown AGAIN.

That’s Merseyside Police making sure no one is sunbathing on Southport beach.
It's looking out for Cummings and goings.
Have you lot got the basic Flightradar or an enhanced version ?
I use the free app on my phone.
A lot of etch-a-sketch activity in the south east today.
flying backwards out of Liverpool sounds exciting.
