Police use thermal drone to rescue missing woman who collapsed at Belvoir Castle

Nottinghamshire Police have released drone footage of the moment a missing elderly woman was rescued after collapsing in the grounds of Belvoir Castle.

The vulnerable pensioner vanished from her home 30 miles away on 4 November, sparking a drone team to scour the area.

Thanks to thermal imaging, police were able to pick out the woman - who was lying unconscious in a freezing ditch in a field - and send officers to rescue her “in seconds”.

After being found, the woman was treated by paramedics and was not seriously hurt.
