Police are probing a line of inquiry the major disruption caused at the London airport was an inside job, sources have told The Times.

Police are suggesting it was an "inside job" at the moment, according to sources speaking to The Times, who say Sussex Police, after conducting 1,100 interviews with witnesses and locals, have concluded the attacks were carried out by someone who must've had intimate knowledge of the Gatwick site layout and security arrangements. The attacker hid the drone behind buildings where it could not be taken down by anti-drone equipment.

"[The drone pilot] knew the blind spots for it, where it could not be "hit", a government official told the newspaper.

'It was clearly someone with really good knowledge of Gatwick, someone who had worked there.

Transport spokesman Robert Troy TD said: "In the first instance I am glad that the disruption to flights in Dublin Airport was kept to a minimum and that all flights have resumed, however let there be no doubt about it, it could have been much more chaotic. Hypothetically it could have been a disgruntled employee". More than 100,000 passengers were affected.

Mohali and Delhi are the venues for the last two ODIs which will be played on March 10 and 13 respectively. Pandya will begin his strength work from next week", said the BCCI in a statement.

A second source said the "disgruntled employee theory is running high".

This means the total eye witness accounts of the drone at Gatwick between December 19 and December 21 totals 130.

About 1,000 flights were cancelled at the airport over three days due to the drone sightings.

'We're now going even further and extending the no-fly zone to help keep our airports secure and our skies safe.

The no-fly zone for drones around airports is to be extended following the disruption at Gatwick, the United Kingdom government has said.
