• If you have any concerns about unmanned aircraft being used in your area, either from a safety or privacy perspective, contact your local police on 101.

    The Police often have greater resources, response times and powers of investigation than the CAA.  To support this, the CAA has now agreed with the Police, in a signed Memorandum of Understanding that the Police will take the lead in dealing with unmanned aircraft misuse incidents, particularly at public events, that may contravene aviation safety legislation or other relevant criminal legislation.

    The CAA’s remit is limited to safety and does not include concerns over privacy or broadcast rights.

    Privacy issues are covered by the Information Commissioners Office (ICO) and will not be dealt with by the CAA.
