Police hunting those responsible for the Gatwick drones chaos have identified “persons of interest”, the BBC understands.

The UK’s second busiest airport has reopened after drones flying over the airfield closed it for more than a day.

Police are exploring “a number of lines of inquiry”, including environmental activism and “high-end criminal behaviour”.
