The Truth about Goats

New ‘drone detection’ system involves two paper cups and a piece of string

Security Minister Ben Wallace has insisted that Gatwick will suffer no further disruptions, thanks to a pair of opera glasses and the 1987 Puffin edition of ‘I spy drones’. Using a blend of semaphore and carrier pigeon, the message will be relayed to the nearest person with a high-vis jacket, their own bicycle and ‘an interest” in model aircraft.

The state of the art system is said to include an Amstrad 512, a filofax and an infinite number of monkeys. Mr. Wallace insisted that any drone would be instantly spotted or at the very least re-designated as some kind of pigeon.

Once detected, the drone will be neutralised a specially trained weasel, fired from a handheld catapult. The startled rodent will disarm the drone using its needle point fangs and a swiss army knife.

Rumours persist that the original drone sightings may have been fake, or the result of an enthusiastic plane watcher holding his binoculars the wrong way around. A spokeswoman said: ‘We are now fully prepared for any airborne toy – other than a Frisbee’.

"It takes a sick and yet highly evolved mind to fully grasp the sophistication of your humor. I tried to explain this to my wife, who thought I was having convulsions as I lay on the floor laughing." (Mike Lince)
