From Morning Report, 7:14 am on 21 December 2018

Thousands are stranded in Gatwick airport, as Christmas travel is delayed because of drones. The U.K government says it's a reckless attempt to cripple Britain's second busiest airport. Two drones were spotted on the runway Thursday. About 110 thousand passengers on 760 flights were due to fly, and disruption could last for several days. Gatwick Police told the BBC that they were still trying to find the drone operator or operators.
