The United Kingdom's Sussex Police said on Saturday it has made two arrests in connection with a drone disruption at London's Gatwick Airport.

The arrests were made late on Friday, according to a statement released by authorities.

Gatwick, Britain's second-busiest airport, was reopened on Friday after being forced to close for 36 hours this week, stranding more than 100,000 Christmas travelers.
