Drones are expected to feature heavily on many a Christmas wish-list this year - from the in-the-palm-of-your-hand internal toys which can fly around the living room, to the top of the range, £700+ drones used to explore the amazing British countryside and capture incredible photos. Drones have truly become the must-have gadget for 2017.

However, it’s critical that while fun must remain paramount, safety must also remain absolutely front of mind when using the larger end devices outside.

The scale of the terrorism threat to the UK is "unprecedented", the new head of MI6 has said.

Alex Younger said UK intelligence and security services had disrupted 12 terrorist plots since June 2013.

He said many of the threats came from ungoverned spaces in the Middle East - namely Iraq and Syria.

Mr Younger also warned that "hybrid warfare", which included cyber-attacks and subverting democracy, was becoming an "increasingly dangerous phenomenon".
