Is this Pilot flouting the CAA restrictions?

    Just saw this taken in my home town:


    But concerned that the pilot may not have been flying within the restrictions laid down from the CAA?
    I could be wrong.

    Regards

    Yes I thought so as well, flying in rain, over highways & buildings not under the pilots control.
    But more importantly the distance between the UAV and pilot.

    Not good for us ;(

    Found a very similar one to the one above commissioned by a local Council here in N. Ireland. Public money being spent on illegal flying activity. I have emailed the Council and the Civil engineering contractor involved politely explaining the illegal nature of the video. We'll see what happens.

    Looks like flying over a congested area without VLOS and over 500m for sure
