Boing Boing: UK police to using hovering spy drone to record unruly behavior

The UK's first police remote control helicopter has taken off. Merseyside police are using the "spy drone", fitted with CCTV cameras, mainly for tackling anti-social behaviour and public disorder. The machine is 1m wide, weighs less than a bag of sugar, and can record images from a height of 500m. Originally used by the military, it is due to be operational by June for a full three-month trial, which is the "first of its kind" in the UK.
