Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson has said the armed forces are “always” ready to help the police and will do everything they can to ensure Gatwick opens again as soon as possible.

“Sussex Police have requested assistance and support from the armed forces and we will be deploying the armed forces to give them the help that they need to be able to deal with the situation of the drones at Gatwick Airport,” Mr Williamson said.

“It goes to demonstrate how our armed forces are always there ready to support the civilian authorities.”

When asked how the armed forces would assist, Mr Williamson responded: “Sadly at this moment it’s not something we can actually reveal but the armed forces have a range of unique capabilities and this isn’t something we would usually deploy but we are there to assist and do everything we can so that they are in a position to open the airport at the earliest opportunity.”
