Murder detectives are searching woodland for the possible remains of a dad who vanished seven months ago. Police believe Mohammed Shah Subhani - known as Shah - may have been shot dead after his Audi was discovered riddled with bullet holes. The 27-year-old, from Hounslow, west London, was last seen on May 7 and one theory officers are probing is that his body may have been buried following a row over a drug deal.

The criminal who is illegally flying a drone at Gatwick Airport is being hunted by police and military personnel using cutting-edge technology. Gatwick has been brought to a standstill in the wake of the rogue drone terrorising the airport.

Human snipers have also been brought in to help with the pursuit of the drone. The Army has been working on a 'Drone Dome' or 'kill-jammer' - which can 'soft kill' a drone by knocking out its communications or a 'hard kill' by shooting it down with a laser from up to two miles away - and may use this prototypical technology. It remains unknown when the debacle will end and normal service will be resumed and how the drone fiasco will be drawn to a close.
