Helicopter crew 'spied on sunbather'
EASTBOURNE The crew of a Ministry of Defence helicopter broke low-flying rules, causing hundreds of thousands of pounds worth of damage to a Sussex mansion, so that they could spy on an au-pair who was sunbathing, the High Court was told yesterday.
Spied? They were trying to communicate with her, is that really spying?
I'm sure the pilot replied, "it seemed like a good idea at the time."
