In­tim­i­da­tion in the sky

Canal Boat - - Letters - NAME AND EMAIL

Re­cently we were moored on the visi­tors’ moor­ings be­low the sec­ond lock at Stoke Bruerne when a cou­ple of fish­er­men ar­rived and set up op­po­site.

All was quiet for a cou­ple of hours un­til they got bored and we heard what sounded like a lawn­mower. We looked out to see a drone, op­er­ated by these ‘fish­er­men’ be­ing flown above and around the boat. It was very in­tim­i­dat­ing. We moved on around the cor­ner away from them in case of any fur­ther trou­ble.

It was ironic as the ra­dio was full of a drone hit­ting an air­plane at Heathrow Air­port the day be­fore ( that­later­proved­to­bein­cor­rect–Ed).

Were we un­lucky or is this be­com­ing the lat­est ‘nui­sance’ on the canals? supplied
