News and Events January 2017
On Tuesday 22nd November I was driving home from Stamford to Barnack via Pilsgate. About 200 yards from Barnack I noticed a light in the mirror. It was small yellow hovering light with what looked like static bouncing on the glass of the rear window. In less than seconds the light filled the interior of the car and blocked the windscreen almost entirely. I bent my head and found a very small space at the bottom of the windscreen (about 4 inches) which enabled me to see a clear road. Immediately I did this, the light vanished.
I spoke with a neighbour about this incident and he immediately knew that it had been a Drone and advised me to call the Police on 101 which is what I did. A report was made and I was told to contact the number again should there be any further incidence.
I was told that there are strict guidelines concerning the use of Drones. You may have heard recently about one which flew near a passenger plane.
If nothing else, I did not panic or think “little green men had arrived”. However, I am aware that there could have been an accident. I may have been hurt and the car smashed. The sound of a Drone is like an incredibly loud strimmer. If anyone knows of the person/s who so irresponsibly is using this “big boy’s toy” please contact the police on 101. Thank you.
