A consignment of drugs meant for those locked up in Bullingdon Prison has been knocked out of the sky by prison bosses, with authorities revealing that a drone's cargo of drugs was "intercepted" by prison staff before it could be divvied up among inmates.
According to the Mirror the drone was laden with "high-strength cannabis" set to make Christmas infinitely more bearable for the people inside, and the UAV actually made it inside -- crash landing in an exercise yard. It was got to first by staff, though, with prison bosses using this scrape to remind everyone that there's a maximum two-year jail term on offer to anyone rumbled smuggling stuff into prisons by chucking/flying/teleporting it over and through walls.
Prison Service spokeswoman Rebecca Gough confirmed the news, saying: "Staff at HMP Bullingdon intercepted a drone carrying contraband on Tuesday. No illicit material got into the prison as a result of this incident and the police are investigating. Incidents involving drones are rare, but we remain constantly vigilant to all new threats to prison security."
