Council yet to use drone despite paying £36,000 over 18 months ago

A drone that has cost a county council nearly £36,000 has not flown operationally a single time since it was purchased more than a year and a half ago. West Sussex County Council became one of the first local authorities in the UK to buy a drone, in February 2018. Then council leader Louise Goldsmith hailed the many “exciting opportunities” for its use, including by firefighters.
