Departures at Heathrow Airport in the UK were temporarily stopped after a drone was reported to have been sighted.

Flights from the west London airport resumed about an hour after police said a drone had been seen.

A Heathrow spokeswoman had said it was a "precautionary measure" to “prevent any threat to operational safety”.

It comes after last month's disruption at Gatwick Airport which saw thousands of people stranded when drones were sighted.
