As I left the nature reserve, there could have been a knight in shining armour moment, with the timely arrival of the Surrey Police at the County boundary. I thought the police had arrived due to an earlier call-out from three young men attempting a rescue of two badly injured cockerels abandoned earlier; probably, it was thought, after being used for cockfighting. But it wasn't to be, as the anti-social behaviour that I was attempting to report to the navel of the police officer, turned out to be just fine, as it hadn't put me at Threat, Harm or Risk. In addition, there was no CCTV (as the video on my phone didn't count) and the independent witness who had joined our delightful debate, wasn't on my side anyway, as it is much more fun to be five onto one.
So, even though nature is everything, it gives us all we need (food, water, air, soil) it is the basis of our economy (food, commodities, minerals etc.) keeps us sane (beauty and healing space) we cannot report its abuse, unless we have been under threat, harm or risk. Furthermore there can be no investigation, unless there is independent CCTV footage and the corroborative evidence of a witness.
The council will be erecting sign boards stating that motorcycles are not allowed on TCF. In the meantime you are a very naughty boy x 4.
There are two sets of regulations which apply to the use of drones in the UK, whether they are being used for commercial or recreational purposes:
The UK’s aviation regulations which are regulated by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA)
The UK’s data protection regulations are enforced by the Information Commissioners Office (ICO).
You can find details about the requirements to fly a drone commercially from the CAA at
