Drones Conference Moved Out of Bath

The public pressure regarding the planned Bath Drones Conference has had a partial success. The conference has now been moved to the Cranfield University campus in Shrivenham, Wiltshire.

As well as protest groups and members of the public, Councillor Nicholas Coombes has also raised an objection, stating "I am now raising my objection to the conference. It can no longer be said that there was no protest. If this arms show goes ahead, it is not in my name" and also "I may also see you protesting outside the Assembly Rooms in June."  Councillor Paul Fox also stated in the Bath Chronicle "It is not the sort of thing that should be associated with Bath which is a prime tourist destination."

 Protests are still likely to go ahead at the new location, a defence academy.
