Accompanying the tweet was a comment from the police which said: “Poachers in Beckingham last night thought they could hide in their car in a wood. 24hr thermal police drone deployed, finds them in minutes and guides in LincsPoliceK999 – 4 in custody.”

It is not the first time this month the Police department in Lincolnshire has used its drone services successfully.

Around a fortnight ago the force used a drone to locate a rape victim, again using thermal imaging.
