A filmmaker today (Thurs) stormed out of court after he was fined more than £1,000 for flying a drone over Hyde Park.
Richard Brunner, 32, was spotted by police piloting the aircraft in Park Lane, London just yards above two open-top buses sitting in traffic waiting to cross the Marble Arch roundabout.
The drone, described by Brunner as being 'about the same size and weight as a seagull', was fitted with a camera underneath, he was waiting to film three Mini Coopers for commercial purposes.
The area was particularly busy with tourists and a triathlon was taking place in Hyde Park close by.
