A DRONE has been lost on Henley Mount while pictures were being taken to start a ‘Mount Trust’.
Henley resident and trust founder David Broadbent had enlisted the help of his friend to take pictures of the land using his state-of-the-art drone on Thursday (July 9).
David had hoped to use the pictures to help set up the Mount Trust, to show how scenic the land is and what it can be used for.
But when the drone – which can cost anywhere between £200 and £2,000 – malfunctioned it crashed and was ‘impossible to find’.
It is believed to have come down somewhere near the area of the lower footpath on the town side.
David told the Observer: “We tried to find it for nearly two hours but it was really difficult through the stingers.
“It could easily have caught on anything, a tree or hanging branch or be hidden somewhere.
“My friend was taking the pictures as a favour to me, as you are not allowed to sell photos taken by a drone.
“It’s no good to anyone without the remote, which we still have. I really hope someone will find it and I am offering a reward to anyone who does.”
