The first dedicated police drone unit in the UK has been launched.

Devon and Cornwall Police began testing the drones with Dorset Police in 2015, but have now established a permanent unit with three full-time staff.

It is hoped the drones could be used to track suspects in firearm incidents as well as in counter-terrorism operations.

The unit’s six drones have already been used to find missing people and gather evidence to secure court convictions.
