  • Climate activists planned to fly toy drones around London’s Heathrow Airport on Friday in a controversial effort to shut down Europe’s busiest travel hub over the weekend.
  • It was expected to make exceptions should this only involve miniature drones flying close to the ground and away from runways or flight paths — the rules Heathrow Pause intends to keep.
