Women share their anger after drone footage on Brighton beach

YOUNG women in bikinis were angered by a drone that appeared to be filming them on the beach.

The women, in their early 20s, enjoyed a swim in the sea on Brighton beach and said a drone flew towards them after disembarking.

They said they were “molested” by the drone and didn’t want to be filmed up close.

One of the girls involved in the incident, who asked to be called just Rebecca, said: “At first we thought it was filming the beach, but once it was at our eye level we were 100 per cent sure it was.” it looked to us. It felt like it had been there for an uncomfortably long time.

“We wore pretty revealing clothes because we were at the beach.

The Argos:

“The drone dehumanizes the whole situation because there’s no face behind it.”

Rebecca, 22, was part of a group of five girls who traveled from London on Sunday August 14 for a friend’s birthday.

Friends Rhiana and Freya, both 24, said they felt uncomfortable as the drone “hung over” them for several minutes and the girls said they were about to “throw a rock” at the machine.

According to government and civil aviation authority guidance, this includes drone pilots flying no closer than 50 meters to a person and ensuring footage captured does not violate privacy laws.

The girls also say people have since reached out to them on social media to share similar experiences. Rebecca added that she would like “stronger rules to come into effect on this”.

She added, “There isn’t enough awareness of this, there’s nothing that can help us defend ourselves.”

The incident has since been reported to Sussex Police, with a spokesman saying further contacts would be made in due course.
