'The drone isn't flying': Activists face technical glitch at Heathrow Airport

Heathrow Pause, a splinter group of climate change campaigners Extinction Rebellion, aimed to ground flights by illegally flying drones within 5 km of an airport, to put pressure on the government to take tougher steps to reduce carbon emissions.

However, a livestream of the event posted to Twitter showed that the drones had failed to take off due to technical issues.

Heathrow Pause said that authorities had used jamming signals to keep the drones grounded.
