On Monday a scheme will be launched to support the research and development of drone technology for uses in industry, logistics and healthcare.

Aviation minister Baroness Sugg said: "Drones have great potential and we want to do everything possible to harness the benefits of this technology as it develops.

"But if we are to realise the full potential of this incredibly exciting technology, we have to take steps to stop illegal use of these devices and address safety and privacy concerns.

"These new laws strike a balance, to allow the vast majority of drone users to continue flying safely and responsibly, while also paving the way for drone technology to revolutionise businesses and public services."

The draft drone bill will be published for consultation and introduce secondary legislation amendments in spring 2018.
