Inquiry Opened into Drone Over French President’s Fort

An inquiry has been opened after an unauthorised drone was reported to have flown over Presidential summer home Fort de Brégançon, as France President Macron and his wife Brigitte are staying there.

The President and his wife arrived at the fort in Bormes-les-Mimosas  on Friday afternoon, and welcomed British Prime Minister Theresa May for an official visit that evening.

In a statement, the Elysée Palace confirmed that a drone had later been spotted flying above the fort, and said: “An inquiry is underway concerning this flyover.”

The statement did not confirm or deny whether the drone in question had been shot down or recovered.

It continued: “The majority of stays by the President are private and unofficial”, and said that “the outings of the President are completely private”.
