Seattle police are investigating after a drone collided with the city’s giant Ferris wheel on Wednesday afternoon.

There were no injuries in the incident in which the drone hit the wheel and then a table as it fell to the ground.

The incident has added weight to calls to introduce national registers for the unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV).

The US has started up a register while the Irish Aviation Authority (IAA) has just announced similar plans for UAVs weighing over 1kg.

The area on Seattle’s Pier 57 is understood to be a no-fly zone.
