Southend Airport has been trialling new drone tracing technology.

The Essex airport's system can spot and track drones as well as locating the operator.

Previously, it had been almost impossible to find who was flying drones near the airport. This new technology will mean drone users can now be apprehended.

Rogue drone operators are becoming a big problem for airports and can stop flights.
