Night flight restrictions on London airports would be temporarily lifted to ease the strain on Gatwick Airport, which cancelled all flights after large drones were seen in its vicinity, British Transport Secretary Chris Grayling announced on Thursday. Grayling said the restrictions would be relaxed on Thursday night only to try and move stranded passengers from the UK's second-biggest airport.
