A man is due to appear in court over allegations that he flew drones over several locations including Buckingham Palace.

The Metropolitan Police say 42 year-old Nigel Wilson, from Nottingham, has been summoned in relation to 17 breaches of the Air Navigation Order.

Among venues over which he is said to have flown a "small unmanned surveillance aircraft" are Liverpool's Anfield and the Emirates Stadium, Arsenal's home ground.

He is also alleged to have failed to maintain direct, unaided and visual contact with a drone at House of Parliament.
