Drone

Pretty much been said.

The rules can be seen here https://www.caa.co.uk/Consumers/Mode...Flying-drones/

Worth noting that if it has a camera (whether recording or not) it is classed as "data collecting" and therefore even stricter rules apply.

Irrelevant that it is a drone / UAV Privacy law also applies.

Getting permission to legally fly in a populated area is a lot of effort and a lot of CAA paperwork.

Definitely a non-emergency call to the police and an email to the CAA if it were me.

Having a garden hose handy would be a good alternative to anything more questionable. Even if it didn't brining it down the pilot wouldn't be very keen to return after it getting a soaking.

True - but I'd imagine that the owner would have to provide reasonable evidence in Court that the drone had been shot/hosed down. The question of data collection would then arise, as would the legalities of flying/filming around a domestic dwelling...?

Not worth the hassle to the "pilot" I suspect. Personally I'd take the drone out and worry about the fallout afterwards
